According to sources, the ‘Maa Vaishnavi’ ferry was en route Dhunaguri Ghat in Lakhimpur from Majuli.
The ferry carrying more than 50 passengers was stranded for one and a half hour in the mighty river.
Additionally, the ferry was carrying a four-wheeler and 25 bikes.
However, the reason behind the situation is yet to be ascertained.
Last year in September, a ferry capsized after it collided head-on with another ferry in Nimati Ghat.
