Students of different educational institutions continued street demonstrations in the capital on Sunday to meet their various demands, including road safety and half bus fares.
During their demonstrations, they also blocked the roads, which halted traffic and caused sufferings for commuters.
The protesters carrying placards and banners in the hands chanted various slogans and demanded implementation of the 9-point demand raised during the safe road movement in 2017.
“If our demands are not met in time, we will continue our street movement,” many a demonstrator said.
The protesters are checking documents of vehicles plying the roads. They took help from police if drivers’ licence and papers of vehicles are not correct.
Dhanmondi Zone Assistant Commissioner of Police (AC) Abdullah Al Masum told journalists that the students were holding a sit-in at the corner of Dhanmondi No. 27 area.
“Traffic jams were created due to their programme. We are trying to get the students off the road.” Tejgaon Division Police have allegedly taken a student along with her father to the police station in Dhanmondi.
At noon, the student served food among the protesting students. At the same time, another boy asked the student for a Bkash number and told her to send money.
The matter has come under the surveillance of detective police. The student has been called to the police station along with her father to find out if there is any involvement or transaction in this safe road movement.
