Earlier on August 12, students seeking quota reform threatened to go for tougher movement if their three-point demand is not met by August 31.
They came up with the ultimatum from a rally in front of Shahbagh National Museum.
Their demands are: Immediate release of the activists, who were detained during movement, from jail, punishment of the attackers involved in assaulting teachers and students and publish a gazette notification on quota reform in the civil service in line with their earlier five-point demand.
