Barishal: Students of Government BM College protested on Saturday, demanding maximum penalty for the bus driver involved in Friday's road accident in Barishal which left seven people dead, reports UNB.

One of the victims was an MA student of the college.

Agitated students blocked the Dhaka-Barishal Highway for about two hours, halting traffic on the busy road. They brought out a procession from the campus before putting up barricades on the highway at Notullabad around 10am.

Police visited the spot and requested the protesters to end their demonstration, said Nurul Islam, officer-in-charge of Kotwali Police Station.

The students called off their protests after Barishal City Mayor Sher Niabat Sadik Abdulla assured them that justice will be done, the OC added.
