A three-member probe committee has been formed over the incident 

Maritime traffic movement on the Karnaphuli channel has resumed, three hours after two ships collided at the Chittagong Port.

Earlier, around 8:30am on Friday, a feeder vessel collided with an oil tanker at the outer anchorage of Chittagong Port – halting marine traffic on the Karnaphuli River. 

The incident occurred in the channel adjacent to the Boat Club area, said Chittagong Port Authority Secretary Md Omar Faruque.

“Following the collision, the ships have been taken to a dry dock and the Karnaphuli channel is now clear and open for marine traffic,” he said.

A three-member probe committee-headed by Captain Faridul Alam—deputy conservator of Chittagong Port Authority—has been formed to investigate the cause of the accident and the extent of the damage. 

The committee was asked to submit a report within three working days, Faruque added.
