Update : 06 Jan 2024, 13:24

A 48-hour hartal, called by BNP and like-minded opposition parties to protest the 12th parliamentary election to be held Sunday (January 07, 2024), is underway.

The hartal began at 6 am this morning (January 06, 2024) and will end at 6 am on Monday (January 08, 2024).

A large number of people have left Dhaka city ahead of the January 7 national parliamentary election. The number of vehicles on the street are fewer compared to other days, but despite fear of arson attacks, public vehicles were plying the streets.

Four people were killed as arsonists burnt four coaches of the Benapole Express train in Dhaka last night.
