Star report-

Nahid Hasan, Chief Reporter, DHAKA, April 20 : The death toll of the recent violent storm rose to 91 yesterday after six more bodies had been recovered while around 1000 fishermen and a navy commander still remain missing. A rescue team, however, was able to salvage the marooned navy ship. 

Coast guards and relatives of the missing fishermen are still searching for them but the choppy sea is disrupting the search, an Inter-services Public Relations (ISPR) news release said. 

Fishermen of Kuakata shore. who narrowly escaped death during the storm, demanded access to modern technologies in deep-sea including mobile network and radio broadcasts. 

Meanwhile, the met office said, the land depression is still remaining stationary with no virtual movement over West Bengal and adjoining Bangladesh border area. The met office still requested to hoist the local cautionary signal number three for all. The weather might remain gloomy today, the met office said. 

Our Cox’s Bazar correspondent reports, a search team with 20 trawlers went to deep sea to search for the missing fishermen but they could only recover the broken parts of some trawlers. They found those on a shoal (বালুচর). 

According to the sources, nearly 500 fishermen from the district still remain untraced. 

Our Chandpur correspondent reports, rainfall for four consecutive days created severe waterlogging inside three big irrigation project embankments including Meghna-Dhongoda irrigation project. Official sources said at least 1500 hectares of paddy, fruit and vegetable fields are inundated in the district.
