A woman and her daughter who met a tragic accident in the River Turag on Saturday morning are still missing, as divers couldn’t find them yet.

Fire Service and Civil Defence, the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA), Coast Guard and River Police searched for Rupayan, 30, and her two-year-old daughter Jesmin on Sunday, but all to no avail.

The BIWTA and River Police ended their rescue operation in the afternoon, but the Fire Service and Coast Guard said that they would continue their hunt for the duo.

Lima Khanam, an officer of the Fire Service and Civil Defence control room, told the Daily Sun that they suspended the rescue operation for the day and would resume today.
