Dhaka, Aug 5 (Just News): Hundreds of police armed with weapons and sticks took position this morning at Mirpur-10 roundabout where students held protest since July 29 following the death of two students in a road accident on Airport Road.
Community police armed with sticks are not allowing crowds to gather at the intersection or any other nearby places.
There was no sight of any students at the spot unlike the last seven days when the students usually gathered at the spot by this time.
An armored personnel carrier was also stationed at the spot.
Both male and female police personnel were seen in large numbers at the roundabout.
The students’ protest demanding safe roads and justice for two deceased peers took a horrifying turn as members of the ruling Awami League’s student wing attacked them at Jhigatola injuring hundreds of students.
Amid protest, police are going to start “traffic week” across the country from today.
