Many city dwellers have stumbled at the closed gates of National Zoo at Mirpur-1 and Shishu Park at Shyamoli in the capital.

The bored people in the city gathered in front of the zoo and park on Saturday to lighten the air.

Some parents took their children to the places for some amusement as the kids have remained confined to home for long with educational institutions closed amid the pandemic.

Amid surge in Covid-19 cases, the authorities concerned closed National Zoo and Shishu Park not to allow any crowd.

Ignorant of the real status of the zoo and park, people went to the places to add extra colour to the Eid celebration and got frustrated with the shut gates.

The rides are lying idle at the Shishu Park for lack of visitors who are barred by boundary wall and shut gates.
