Hundreds of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinees have besieged the Gulshan political office of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Saturday morning demanding withdrawal of hartal-blockade during their SSC and equivalent examinations.
The examinees are staging a sit-in on road no 86 of Gulshan Avenue where Khaleda's office is located, from 10:30am.
A large number of police have been deployed in the area to avert any untoward situation.
Amjad Hossin, Gulshan zone patrol inspector, said they are prepared enough to face any unexpected situation.
Earlier on Friday, BNP led 20-party alliance declared to enforce a 72-hour countrywide hartal from Sunday morning protesting threats by ruling Awami League leaders to arrest BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and uproot her Gulshan political office.
