Bangladesh-India bus service resumes after 2yrs
Bus services between Bangladesh and India have resumed after over two years of suspension due to the pandemic.
Before suspension of the services, buses were operated on five cross-border routes — Dhaka-Kolkata-Dhaka, Dhaka-Agartala-Dhaka, Dhaka-Sylhet-Shillong-Guwahati-Dhaka, Agartala-Dhaka-Kolkata-Agartala, and Dhaka-Khulna-Kolkata-Dhaka.
Indian High Commission in Bangladesh issued a statement on Friday in this regard.
It reads:”Bus services between India and Bangladesh via ICP Agartala-Akhaura and ICP Haridaspur-Benapole resumed with Dhaka-Kolkata-Dhaka bus being flagged off from Dhaka early morning today.”
The development came after railway services between the two neighbouring countries resumed on May 29.
Both the bus and train services were suspended in March 2020, when the deadly coronavirus hit Bangladesh.
