A crew went missing as two goods-laden vessels drowned in the Bay of Bengal at Bhashan Char in Noakhali district on Thursday noon.

 

Deputy Director Mohammad Selim of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) said ‘Khaza Baba Faridpuri’ capsized with 1,700 metric tons wheat was going to Narayanganj, when it reached the area and faced a powerful tide.

 

Although twelve crew members managed to swim safely to the shore, one went missing.

 

On the other hand, wheat-laden ‘N Islam’ drowned near the Bhashan Char area as another vessel collided with it, deputy director Selim said.
