At least 298 people were killed and 860 others injured in road, railway and waterway accidents across the country during the journey on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, according to a platform working for passengers' rights. 

Among the numbers, 273 were killed and 849 injured in 232 road accidents across the country during the period from May 30 to June 11, Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity said in a report.

Mozammel Haque Chowdhury, Secretary General of the organisation, revealed the information at a press conference held at Dhaka Reporters Unity on Saturday.

The report also stated that Eid journeys were a little bit comfortable this year compared to the past years due to the government's proper initiatives.
