Heavy rains lashed the capital of Bangladesh on the occasion of Eid-al-Adha, which led to water logging in the streets across Dhaka. As citizens performed animal sacrifices to mark the festival in the same streets, the blood got mixed with the floodwater, making them appear like nightmarish rivers of blood.

While citizens blamed it on the poor drainage system and city corporation’s inefficiency in clearing out animal waste in a proper manner, the public too were at fault, as they performed the ritual animal slaughters for Eid in unauthorised public places for the sale of convenience.
