Home Economics College students today blocked the New Market road placing demand for institutionalisation under the Dhaka University.
Several hundreds of students blocked the key road in capital, that connects Azimpur and Dhaka University with Mirpur Road, from 10:00am.
The road blockade was underway until last reported at 12:45pm.
Recently they have been pressing the authorities to convert the institution to a co-education system – from the prevailing ‘girls only’ – to move forward with their demand.
