It has been more than 36 hours since the disastrous accident. By Tuesday morning, 103 were confirmed dead. From then on, there has been no recovery of any more bodies. Bad weather persists to hinder rescue operations at the site.
As rescue teams seek survivors, the families of those who died and those who were missing were devastated.
Minorities Affairs Minister Nazrul Islam said that “Till we get the missing information, we will not be able to find out the actual number of deaths… that is difficult for us…”
It was right in the middle of the river when the accident happened. The ferry was crossing the river when it meets with a cyclonic storm and actually as per reports; the ferry broke into two parts.
