Meanwhile, Parvej, a local resident, told UNB that the operator of the parasailing service owned by trader Farid Alam took the woman on a ride at 6pm violating the rules.

The accident occurred due to darkness, he said.

The district administration was looking into the matter, UNB quoted Executive Magistrate (tourism cell) Sayed Murad Islam as saying.

Actions would be taken against the owner and the operator if found guilty of breaking rules, he added.
