The protesters also took out a procession from the university's Kajla Gate around 9am. Later, they burned tires and occupied the road.

"The quota for the ethnic minorities must be reinstated. This is not the time to revoke the quotas," Adivasi Chhatra Parishad central President Nokul Pahan told the Dhaka Tribune.
