CHATTOGRAM: With immersion of idols of Durga the festivity of Durga Puja, the largest religious festival of Hindu community, concluded in the port city as elsewhere in the country on Wednesday.
Thousands of devotees thronged at the city's Patenga Sea Beach to bid farewell to the goddess Durga by trucks and private vehicles.
Chattogram City Corporation (CCC) in association with the Puja Udjapan Parishad also organised a programme at the sea beach.
Chattogram Mohanagar Puja Udjapan Parishad President Ashish Kumar Bhattacharya told the Daily Sun that they immersed almost all idols by 7:00pm.
"We peacefully celebrated the puja as local administration and law enforces provided us with all out support to make the celebration successful," he said. Sufficient security measures were taken in and around the Patenga Sea Beach to avert any untoward incident, said sources.
Idols were also immersed in large number at Kattali Beach, Kalurghat, Bashghata in Sadarghat, Firingee Bazar and Parky Sea beach in the city, they said.
Besides, the immersion was also carried out at different upazilas including Hathazari, Sitakunda, Raozan, Patiya and Anwara in the district.
