NEW DELHI (Sputnik) - A ferry sank in the Shitalakkha river near the city of Narayanganj in central Bangladesh, killing more than 20 people and injuring dozens of others, as India's Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) reported on Monday.

The ferry reportedly carrying around 100 passengers sank on Sunday evening after being hit by a cargo vessel.

Abdullah Arefin, Narayanganj's deputy director of fire service and civil defence, said that the rescue operation was complicated by a storm.

According to witnesses, the ferry sank quickly and the cargo vessel left the scene of the accident.
