Sylhet city dwellers and travelers faced trouble on Thursday as public transports stayed off the roads fearing violence centring the verdict of Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
City commuters especially office-goers and examinees of Secondary School Certificate examinations, who must take seat 30 minutes before the exam start, found it difficult to get on buses in the morning as number of vehicles was thin comparatively with usual busy days.
Travelers also found it difficult to go outside and enter Sylhet on Tuesday as few long-route buses left or entered the Sylhet.
Buses from northern and southern regions of the country literally stayed off the roads and highways.
Few long-route buses with few passengers entered the Sylhet from northern region through Central Bus Terminal early hours of Thursday while almost no bus left the terminal on Thursday.
