This wreckage of a vehicle carries about 15 people between Narayanganj’s Pagla and the capital’s Shyampur from dawn to dusk. It does not even have a license plate to pretend that it’s roadworthy. At stake are people’s lives on the road while the authorities turn a blind eye to the gross violation of rules. The photo was taken at Munshikhola yesterday. Photo: Palash Khan

With his hands tied behind his back, this six-year old boy was crying on the footpath near the capital’s Aziz market in Shahbagh when two pedestrians stopped to help him. The boy’s grandfather said he tied the hands to keep him in “control” while the parents, who live on the street, were away for work.

motorcycles seized


Motorcycles seized by DB police gather dust and rust under the Moghbazar Flyover in the capital. The law enforcers have kept around 200 such vehicles there this way, mainly due to a lack of space. In many countries such vehicles are impounded properly in a shaded car park and owners collect them following payment of fines or court orders. Photo: Anisur Rahman
