Battery-run rickshaws unabated on Dhaka roads


A huge number of illegal battery-run auto-rickshaws are plying on the roads of Dhaka’s Uttara area amid Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s ongoing special traffic quarter.

Besides, these illegal easy bikes are seen on Ashkona road under Dakkhinkhan area even in front of the RAB Headquarters.

Drivers of these vehicles said that they had to pay monthly Tk 1,000 to Dakkhinkhan Adarsha Union Parishad.

Road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader time to time gave directives to ban on illegal battery run easy bikes.

On Thursday, he also said that battery-run rickshaws had become a new threat.
