Despite suspension, ferries at Paturia taking people, small vehicles

People desperate to go home for Eid-ul-Fitr were flocking at the Paturia ferry ghat since this morning despite suspension of ferry services.

Ferries assigned to take only ambulances and vehicles with deadbodies across the river were seen carrying private cars and commuters as well, reports our Manikganj correspondent.
