The holy Muslim fasting month of Ramadan started on Monday in Bangladesh.

The month began after the sighting of the new moon, which was not seen anywhere on Saturday in the Muslim-majority Bangladesh, officials said.

Authorities have stepped up security for the month which ends with the greatest Muslim festival of Eid, which will see a surge in crowds at various shopping malls in the city.
