Fuel oil supply from Guptakhali depot resumes
FE Report
8/10/2006
 

          Fuel oil supply from the country's main Guptakhali oil depot in Chittagong resumed Wednesday as Bangladesh Lighterage Sramik Association (BLSA) withdrew its strike after a fruitful discussion with the police administration.
Oil supply to different parts of the country had remained suspended since early hours of Tuesday due to a wildcat strike called by the BLSA protesting police action.
The strike was withdrawn after Deputy Police Commissioner (Port Zone) Dr Nazmul Karim Khan assured the BLSA leaders at a meeting of taking steps to stop robberies on oil tankers.
Oil tanker -- Sanar Kakon -- sailed with 1400 tonnes of diesel for Fatullah of Narayanganj at 11am Wednesday from Guptakhali oil depot immediately after the withdrawal of the strike, sources said.
Oil tankers --Tufan and Barkat - are also leaving the depot with 950 tonnes and 1540 tonnes of diesel respectively.
Another oil tanker -- Sonar Tari -- with 1395 tonnes of diesel will leave the depot this morning (Thursday).
The BLSA went on strike when the police beat up members of the association during an inspection into a robbery incident onboard an oil tanker Monday.
The robbery took place on the Banglar Komol, a privately owned oil tanker, Sunday.
The lighterage association alleged said police did not register any case, but went to the spot with coast guard and beat the labourers present on the deck of the oil tanker.
Later, the association leaders went to the police station and protested such merciless beating. They demanded suspension of the police official responsible for the incident.
