More than two million mobile phone SIM card holders left the capital city in the two days on Saturday and Sunday to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr in their village homes with near and dear ones.  

The sources from mobile phone operator companies confirmed the matter. 

At the same time, over 950,000 SIM card holders entered Dhaka from different districts, they added.

A SIM card holder has been referred to as a person (unique user). They could be accompanied by elderly people and children, who do not use mobile phones which makes it tough to get an actual number of people who left Dhaka before the Eid.

Though the government holiday for the Eid-ul-Fitr will begin on Wednesday, people started leaving the capital city from Thursday, the last working day of the last week.

There were weekly holidays on Friday and Saturday while Sunday marked the holiday for Shab-e-Qadr.

Over 10 million people left Dhaka in five days before the Eid-ul-Fitr last year.
