BIWTA chairman made this remark while inspecting the salvage operation on the third day at the Paturia Ferry Terminal, reports UNB.

“Besides BIWTA salvage vessel Hamza, another vassel ‘Rustam’, instead of ‘Prattoy’, is being brought from Shimulia and it will reach Paturia by Friday evening,” said the BIWTA chairman.

He also said only four trucks are yet to be salvaged. “I hope the vehicles will be salvaged by tomorrow.”

On the following day, the shipping ministry and Manikganj deputy commissioner formed two separate committees to investigate the incident.
