Though three days have passed but no step has yet been taken to salvage the coal-laden vessel that capsized in the Pashur River in Mongla upazila near the Sunderbans on April 14.
The owner of the cargo is yet to tell the exact time of starting the salvage work, said divisional forest officer (east) of Sunderbans Md Mahmudul
Hasan.
‘The forest department is yet to start the investigation as the cargo owner did not provide them any necessary documents of the vessel, none of the owner side was available to interrogate,’ he said.
Meanwhile, cargo owner Md Sohel Uddin said that the salvage work will begin within one or two days and they have appointed a private company to salvage the vessel.
