The transport movement on the Dhaka-Sylhet and Dhaka-Chattogram highways has resumed as the protesting transport workers called off their siege at Siddirganj in Narayanganj.

Since the 7:00 in the morning, the workers, who have been protesting against a newly implemented law, laid siege at critical entrances of the capital, Dhaka.

Following police’s intervention, they pulled out the siege programme letting the vehicular movement on on the highways in and out of Dhaka city and other adjacent roads.

The siege was withdrawn peacefully after police's talking to the strikers, acting superintendent of police in Narayanganj Monirul Islam said.

He also said no violent acts were reported and the vehicular movement is normal.

Despite the calling off of siege, there is a serious scarcity of public transports in the city, leaving thousands of commuters in intense suffering.
