A 75-km tailback was created on the Dhaka-Tangail highway on Saturday morning, inflicting sufferings on thousands of Eid holidaymakers.

Members of law enforcement agencies and volunteers have been working on the highway to ease the gridlock, Sanjib Kumar said.

Vehicles have been moving slowly on the highway since Friday.
