“The rescue team is continuing their search to find the rest of the missing bodies,” the SI added. Some 30-40 people from Rampura started for Matlab of Chandpur to join a religious function at the shrine of Beltoli Solaiman Shah Thursday afternoon. The trawler sank near Kishoreganj char area of Sonargaon due to stormy weather. The district administration of Narayanganj earlier announced Tk20,000 for each deceased.
