Launch services have resumed on Daulatdia-Paturia and Aricha-Kazirhat routes after 21-hour suspension due to Cyclone Bulbul that lashed Bangladesh coasts on Saturday (Nov 9) midnight.

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) began the launch service around 12pm on Sunday, said Faridul Islam, traffic department assistant director at BIWTA Aricha office.

He told Bart24.com that operation of water vessels on Daulatdia-Paturia and Aricha-Kazirhat routes was kept suspended since 3pm on Saturday to avoid any accident.
