At least 355 people were injured in the accidents

Nirapad Sarak Chai (Nischa) stated that at least 185 people were killed in 135 road accidents in nine days during the Eid-ul-Azha vacation.

The accidents took place on the national and regional highways between August 10 and August 18, according to a report prepared by the organization.

At least 355 people were also injured in the accidents, Nischa Acting Director General Liton Ershad told the media at the Jatiya Press Club on Saturday.

He blamed poor traffic management, speeding and overtaking tendencies, unfit vehicles, and poor road conditions for the accidents.

“Road journeys were stressful. Travellers, especially those going to the northern region, suffered the most,” he said. 

Nischa data showed that suffering increased due to schedule collapse of trains, illegal selling of tickets, as well as the initial failure of online ticketing system.
