Basirhat, Jul 14 (UNI) Indo-Bangladesh trade through Ghojadanga near here has been suffering huge loss following student-public agitation on the border.
More than a thousand trucks laden with export items remained stranded on a 6-km stretch between Basirhat and Ghojadanga for last three days due to student-public agitation following death of a student in a road accident on July 11.
