 A total of 43 containers of a cargo ship fell into the Bay of Bengal near Hatiya channel due to bad weather.

According to Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA), the cargo ship MV KSL Gladiator laden with 83 containers was heading towards Pangaon in Keraniganj from Chittagong port.

The cargo vessel owned by Karim Shipping Lines transports container on the Chittagong-Pangaon route.

We are also keeping an eye on it," the official added, noting that the accident did not disrupt regular vessel movement on the channel.
