Dawki : More than 1000 Bangladesh-bound coal-laden trucks were stranded along the Jowai-Dawki road after customs officials at International custom station here denied them permission to cross the border. “The trucks have been barred from crossing the border following a Supreme Court order banning trucks to carry a load limit beyond 9 MT,” Customs officials at Dawki International Land Custom Station told PTI.

More than 500 trucks cross over to Bangladesh during peak export seasons and one tonne of coal is sold at $50 in Bangladesh.

The trucks will have to either off-load excess coal or remain stranded in the highway, the official said.

Meanwhile, the stranded trucks have caused a lot of hardship to the passengers vehicles and many of these were reported stranded too. (PTI)
