Rail connection with Sylhet disrupted
Train communication of Sylhet with Dhaka and Chittagong has been disrupted as a rail bridge collapsed due to heavy rainfall early Monday.

The train communication was disrupted from 5am on Monday.

Number 157 Jankichhora rail bridge on Akhaura-Sylhet route collapsed due to heavy rainfall and a flash flood from the hilly area of Lawachhara National Park.

Following the collapse, Dhaka bound inter-city trains ‘Kalni Express, Jayantika Express’ and Akhaura bound diesel electric multiple unit (DEMU) train remained stranded at Sylhet railway station.

It will take at least 24-30 hours to restore the rail communication
