Photo of the day

A passenger tries to pull a rickshaw up from behind after both of its wheels got jammed in a small gap left between the successive lengths of the rail yesterday. Passing through the Tejgaon-FDC level crossing has become a challenging task as part the road is dilapidated. The rickshaw-puller said he tried to sidestep the damaged portion but got stuck on the track instead. They were able to get out of the way before a train arrived. Photo: Rashed Shumon
