The bodies of two more people including a child have been recovered from a launch sinking in Narayanganj.

The death toll from the launch sinking has risen to 10. Two people are still missing in the incident.

Earlier on Sunday, March 20 at noon, the launch named MV Ashraf Uddin, which sank due to a cargo collision, was going from Narayanganj to Munshiganj. On the way, a cargo ship named MV Ruposhi-9 hit the launch near Alamin Nagar Bridge.

Many people from Narayanganj and Munshiganj districts use this water route regularly. Relatives of the passengers crowded the river bank immediately after the accident. When the rescued body was identified, the relatives broke down in tears.
