Notre Dame student's death: Protests held in Dhaka

Students from various educational institutions have staged demonstrations in different areas of the capital on Thursday (Nov 25) demanding safe road and justice for a Notre Dame College student's death in an accident.

Notre Dame College students for the second consecutive day took to the streets around 11.15am and blocked the Shapla Chattar in Motijheel as their fellow Nayeem Hasan was killed yesterday by the accident.

They threatened to continue the movement till fair judgement.

Some 300-400 students of the college with different placards later proceeded towards RAJUK bhaban and left for Gulistan.

At that time, the protesters were chanting different slogans--"We want justice", "We want safe road".

Later in afternoon Notre Dame College students left roads giving a 48-hour ultimatum.

They also warned of taking the city streets from Sunday if their demand is not met by this time.

Besides, the students of Viqarunnisa Noon College expressed solidarity with the movement and staged a demo at the capital's Shantinagar intersection.

Students of several other institutions were staging protests in Farmgate and Uttara areas.

On Wednesday, second-year student Nayeem Hasan of Notre Dame College was killed on Wednesday after being hit by a garbage carrying vehicle of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) in Gulistan.
