Bangladeshi rice-laden truck for Tripura overturns, driver hurt
A Bangladeshi truck, carrying rice from Ashuganj port of that country to Tripura, met with an accident here Monday in which the driver was injured, police said.
The driver of the rice-loaded truck Mohammad Suman Mia suffered head injuries and was admitted to the government-run Govind Ballabh Pant Medical College and Hospital here. Doctors said his condition is stable.
"The foodgrain-laden truck, after crossing the Akhaura India-Bangladesh checkpost, suddenly overturned while negotiating a sharp curve before reaching the FCI (Food Corporation of India) godowns at Nandannagar on the outskirts of Agartala city," police inspector Subrata Chakraborty told IANS.
He said the police did not register any case as none except the vehicle driver was hurt in the mishap.
For the first time, 5,000 tonnes of rice in small ships from Kakinada port in Andhra Pradesh reached Ashuganj river port in (eastern) Bangladesh via Kolkata port Aug 5. From Ashuganj port (40 km from Agartala), Bangladeshi trucks have been carrying the rice to FCI warehouses in Nandannagar.
