Despite the government's ban on long-distance travel and public transportation, many Dhaka residents are travelling by other means to reach their home town while ignoring lockdown restrictions.
Especially people travelling to Northern districts were seen gathering near Savar's Amin Bazar area to board a vehicle for reaching as close to home as possible, reports Somoy TV.
Private cars and ridesharing bikes were seen picking up passengers at an increased fare from the Amin Bazar bridge area.
The commuters were seen determined to cover the distance in parts by changing the means of transportation.
The scenario was almost similar near the Gabtoli bus terminal and bridge.
Although police were seen operating on a limited scale, they failed to disperse the commuters and the vehicles in most of the places.
Some of the people were travelling without a mask and the social distancing rule was hardly followed.
