The rail communications of five districts with other parts of the country resumed after 26 hours of suspension on Sunday afternoon.

The rail communications were suspended on Saturday morning as heavy rain eroded the soil around a pillar of Chakchakia rail bridge in Sonatola upazila of Bogura, suspending the rail communications on Lalmonirhat-Bogura route.

Later, the rail communications were restored after repairing the pillar, said Bogura Railway Station Master Benjurul Islam.

The rail bridge was constructed on a waterbody (Beel) in Sonatola upazila and Valurpara Railway Station during British era, reports UNB.
