Export and import activities between Bangladesh and India remained suspended since Saturday morning due to Vishwakarma Puja, a religious festival of the Hindu community.

Agartala Indo-Bangla Importers-Exporters Association general secretary Shiv Shankar Dev confirmed the matter to Bangladeshi traders on Friday.

Akhaura Land Port Importers-Exporters Association general secretary Safiqul Islam said all kinds of import-export activities will remain closed through the port from next Saturday morning to Sunday for Vishwakarma Puja.

It will resume from September 19.

However, passport-holding passengers can pass through the immigration check post, said Akhaura Immigration in-charge Swapan Chandra Das.
