Special cattle train on C’ganj-Dhaka route ahead of Eid

The Ministry of Railways has decided to run a special cattle train for ferrying sacrificial animals ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.

Western Railway (Rajshahi) General Manager Asim Kumar Talukder said that Bangladesh Railways will operate the train from July 6-8.

The transportation cost of each cow has been fixed at Tk 591.50, he added.

This is the second consecutive time that the west zone of Bangladesh Railways will run a special cattle train on the Chapainawabganj-Dhaka route via Rajshahi.

Chapainawabganj Railway Station Assistant Station Master Obaidullah said the cattle wagons -- each with a carrying capacity of 20 animals -- will depart from Chapainawabganj station at 4.30pm and reach Tejgaon around 3:00am.

Eid-ul-Azha is expected to be celebrated in around a fortnight's time in Bangladesh, depending on the sighting of the moon.
