Bus services resume across country

Dhaka, Aug 6 (Just News): After a suspension for several days following student protests, bus services resumed on Monday morning across the country, including the capital.

Bangladesh Sarak Paribahan Samity on Sunday night decided to operate bus from Monday morning.

Buses were seen plying streets in the capital in the morning as usual.

Besides, long route buses also left city Saidabad, Mahakhali and Gabtali bus terminals, said Kazi Wazed, officer-in-charge of Jatrabari police station.

Amid the growing student movement over a nine-point demand, including ensuring safety on roads and resignation of shipping minister Shajahan Khan, transport owners had suspended the bus services in the capital and on long-routes for an indefinite period.

On 29 July Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib, students of the college section of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin School and College, were killed as a 'Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan' bus ploughed through some students in front of Kurmitola General Hospital on Airport Road which sparked off protests among the students across the country.
