Thakurgaon : Commuters suffer as the Diesel Electric Multiple Unit (Demu) train services on the Parbatipur-Thakurgaon and Parbatipur- Lalmonirhat routes have remained suspended for 100 days due to security reasons.

Thakurgaon railway master Samsul Haque said the authorities of Bangladesh Railway had stopped the plying of the Demu trains on the routes on January 5 when the BNP-led 20-party alliance enforced the blockade across the country.

The authorities stopped the train services to avoid any attack on the trains by pro-blockade and pro-hartal activists, Samsul added.

Earlier, on August 27, 2013, Railway Minister Mujibul Haque inaugurated the Demu train services at the Thakurgaon Railway Station.
