Indefinite transport strike on Dirai-Sunamganj route

Sunamganj Correspondent : Transport owners and workers enforced an indefinite strike on Sunamganj-Dirai road from Friday morning, protesting the torching of a bus after a road accident.

The strike called by Sunamganj Road Transport Owners-Workers Unity Council began at 6am.

The association will also enforce an indefinite strike on all routes in the district from Sunday if any action is not taken against those responsible for setting fire to the bus.

Md Jewel Miah, general secretary of the council, said the decision to enforce the transport strike was made on Thursday.

Rahel Miah, a lineman of Dirai Bidyut office, was killed as a bus hit his motorcycle on Dirai-Sunamganj road at Noakhali on Thursday.

Angered at the accident, locals torched the bus.
