Cox's Bazar: Inclement weather has forced the suspension of movement of passenger vessels on the Teknaf- St Martin's route, leaving at least 500 holidaymakers stranded on Saint Martin's Island of Bangladesh, media reports said.

Confirming the suspension, Teknaf Upazila Nirbahi Officer or UNO, Kamruzzaman told bdnews24 that the operators of the vessels were instructed to pause operation until the weather improves.

“We advised operators to reimburse those who already bought tickets to go to the island in the next few days,” he said.

The region will experience light to moderate rainfall, Md Abdur Rahman, an assistant meteorologist at Cox’s Bazar Met Office, said.

“We haven’t issued any cautionary signals. But the weather is inclement due to seasonal changes,” he told the news portal.

UNO Kamruzzaman also said he directed law-enforcing agencies to make sure the tourists trapped on the island do not face any unpleasant situations.
