Advance train tickets sold out within four hours of going on saleAfter waiting for almost 12 hours at the Kamalapur Railway Station, Abdur Rahman returned home empty-handed on the first day of the advance train ticket sale ahead of Eid-ul-Azha. Many others were similarly frustrated as the tickets sold out within four hours of going on sale. The sale of advance train tickets for Jul 5 started at Dhaka's Kamalapur, Fulbaria, Bimanbandar, Tejgaon, Cantonment and Gazipur's Joydebpur stations at 8 am on Friday, reports bdnews24.com. The counters were supposed to be open until 4 pm but they ran out of tickets by noon, said Kamalapur Station Manager Masud Sarwar. However, tickets for Jul 7 travels will be available on Jul 2, Jul 7 tickets on Jul 3, Jul 7 tickets on Jul 4 and Jul 9 on Jul 5.
