No-one else is missing, police say

The bodies of two children, who went missing when a trawler capsized on the Karkhana River on Sunday, have been recovered.

Fourteen-year-old Lina Akter’s body was found floating in the river in the early hours of Tuesday. Hours later, the body of four-year-old Hafsa was recovered.

A trawler, preparing to depart for Kobai Union from the DC Ghat with passengers, sank after a big chunk of soil from the riverbank fell on it.

Almost everyone managed to swim to the shore, but four people were thought to have been missing.

A navy rescue team joined fire service and coast guard members on Monday.

Local police station’s in-charge Md Masuduzzaman said two others believed to be missing after the accident, were alive.
