DU students block Shahbagh demanding cancellation of 7 colleges affiliation



Students of Dhaka University (DU) blocked Shahbagh intersection on Wednesday demanding cancellation of affiliation of seven colleges with DU.

A group of students brought out a protest procession from the campus this morning. Later, they staged a sit-in at Shahbagh intersection blocking the road at about 11:50am.

The agitating students said that they would continue the sit-in programme until their demand is met.

Vehicular movement on the road remained suspended till filing of this report at 1:30pm.

Shakil Miah, one of the protesters, said, "Seven colleges are a curse for the DU students. Both students of DU and seven colleges suffered a lot for the affiliation. So, we want the cancellation of this affiliation as soon as possible."
