A 75-km tailback was created on Dhaka-Tangail highway on Saturday morning, inflicting sufferings on thousands of Eid holidaymakers.

The gridlock was created from Gorai in Mirzapur upazila to Bangabandhu Bridge due to heavy pressure of vehicles, said police super Sanjib Kumar Biswas.

Members of law enforcement agencies and volunteers have been working on the highway to ease the gridlock, Sanjib Kumar said.

Vehicles have been moving slowly on the highway since Friday.
