Two double decker launches--Sundarban-9 and MV Jamal-5--ran aground on a shoal at the intersection of Karkhana and Kobai rivers around 8 pm, some victims told over phone.

The launches will resume plying as soon as a tidal upsurge will flow in the river around 12am, said Khaja Sadikur Rahman, an official of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) of Patuakhali zone.


All the passengers, however, have been reported safe, he added.
