About 400 students have blocked the Dhaka-Mymenshingh highway in Uttara.

The students, who have been protesting for safer roads, started gathering near Uttara’s Mascot Plaza 11:30am on Sunday.

The students are chanting slogans, our photojournalist Syed Jakir Hossain reported from the spot.

They are demanding speedy implementation of their nine-point demands.

Students have been out on the streets since July 29, demanding safe roads and justice for the two students who were killed in a road accident on Dhaka Airport Road.

Shaheed Ramiz Uddin School and College students Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib were killed, and several others were injured when a bus of “Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan” ploughed into a group of students on July 29.
