AGARTALA, Oct 14: The Agartala-Kolkata bus service via Dhaka, which was scheduled to begin today, has been postponed and would begin from Friday, Tripura Transport Minister Manik Dey said today.
"The bus service was scheduled to begin today but has been postponed to Friday (October 16) following the assault of an officer of Tripura Road Transport Corporation (TRTC) in Dhaka on Monday," Dey told reporters.
TRTC Liaison officer LJ Rokhum was in the Bangladesh capital on Monday to collect the road permit from that country for a new Volvo bus which would ply between Agartala and Kolkata via Dhaka when he was assaulted by some criminals.  "The criminals also snatched the road permit from Rokhum which he had obtained from the Bangladesh government," TRTC Managing Director Keshab Kar told reporters.
The assaulted officer had immediately spoken to the state Transport Secretary Samarjit Bhowmick, who took up the matter with the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.      ?PTI
