Traffic was badly snarled up in and around Mohammadpur Town Hall in the capital on Monday morning, as students of different schools and colleges took to the street to press home their various demands, including half-price bus fare.
As part of their ongoing protests, they blocked the road in front of Allah Karim Jame Mosque at Mohammadpur Bus Stand and chanted various slogans to press home their demand.
Also on Sunday, students of Begum Badrunnessa Government Girls College blocked Bakshibazar intersection in the capital protesting against harassment of a student by a bus staff member over half-price bus fare.
On Saturday, the helper of a bus driver of 'Thikana Paribahan' harassed a female student of the college when she offered half-price bus fare.
Protesting against the incident, the college students took out a procession on the campus demanding punishment of the helper. As they later staged a sit-in on the road, traffic was halted there.
Students of Dhaka College, Shaikh Burhanuddin Post Graduate College, Government Titumir College and Tejgaon College also joined them.
Earlier on Saturday, 10 buses were vandalised by the students of Dhaka College and City College in the capital's Science Laboratory area on Mirpur Road.
