a hawker

Sayed, a hawker who usually sells children’s clothes and bed-sheets on the roadsides of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque, sits next to the row of closed makeshift shops in the area because he could not bear to sit alone at his tiny rented room in the capital. His shop, like countless others, is closed due to the lockdown and he does not have the money to go back to his village home in Munshiganj. He told this newspaper around 3pm yesterday that he had no food since morning, and his family back home was also going hungry because he could not send any money to them. PHOTO: PALASH KHAN

countrywide lockdown

On the second day of the countrywide lockdown, police put up barricades at entrance points to the capital, like this one in Gabtoli. The checkers stopped non-sanctioned incoming vehicles and interrogated passengers about their business in the city. PHOTO: Palash Khan
