Trade between Bangladesh and India through Bhomra Land Port in Satkhira has resumed.
Import and export activities through the port resumed five hours after the Border Security Force (BSF) shut down the gates on the Indian side of the border after the gun of one of their men went missing.
The Indian border guarding organisation opened the gate near Ghojadanga border around 2pm, said Bhomra Port Assistant Commissioner Amir Mamun.
The export and import activities through the port now remained normal, said Mamun.
But the closure will affect daily trading as some 350-400 cargo trucks entered the port daily. At the end of the day it can be said how many trucks could enter the country, he added.
The Bhomra port assistant commissioner said that around Tk2.5 crore in revenue is collected from the port every day, he noted.
BSF sought cooperation of its Bangladeshi counterpart, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB), to recover the missing weapon.
