They blocked the Nilkhet intersection and New Market roads to force the university authorities accept their demands that include publication of exam results within 90 days.

About 400 students took to the streets around 11:30am, halting vehicular movement on the busy road, leading to huge gridlocks and public suffering.

The protesters say they want the university to explain mass failures of students and review exam papers.

They also demand separate administrative building for the seven colleges, at least 14 monthly classes by Dhaka University teachers, launching of separate academic calendar and crash programmes to cut session jam.

The students also protested on Tuesday to press home their demands.
