MANIKGANJ Jan 12, 2018 (BSS) - The movement of ferry services on the Paturia-Daulatdia route resumed this morning after seven hours of its disruption due to dense fog.

The BIWTC authorities suspended plying of ferries on the route around 3:30pm on Thursday due to dense fog aimed at avoiding any type of untoward incident, he said.

During the suspension, about 500 vehicles, including passenger buses, trucks and cars, remained stranded at both ghats, Nasir added.
