The rescue operation for the 20 workers, who went missing after a soil-laden trawler capsized in the Meghna River in Munshiganj on Tuesday, has rolled into the 5th consecutive day as the trawler remains still traceless, reports UNB.

Two teams started the rescue operation around 8 am Saturday and they are trying to trace the trawler through side scan sound wave. 

Besides, divers of Bangladesh Navy, Fire Service, BIWTC, Coast Guard and River police are also trying to locate the trawler.

As there was no progress in rescue drive in five days, the family members of the victim expressed anger.

They also sought the Prime Minister’s interfere in the incident.

Earlier on Friday, a case was filed accusing three people in connection with the incident.

The trawler, carrying 34 workers from Cumilla, sank in the river at Charjhapta in Sadar upazila around 3 am on Tuesday after it collided with an oil-laden tanker while heading towards Fatulla in Narayanganj.

Although 14 workers managed to swim ashore, the rest went missing. All the workers hail from Pabna and Sirajganj districts.
