Death of SSC examinee: Students block Dhaka’s Rampura Bridge
Thousands of agitating students today blocked Rampura Bridge -- protesting the death of SSC examinee Mainuddin Islam Durjoy in a bus accident.
Durjoy (19), a student of Rampura Ekramunnessa High School, was run over by an Anabil Paribahan bus last night amid students' demand for safe roads following the death of Nayeem Hasan, a second-year student of Notre Dame College.
Students from various schools and colleges were carrying placards and shouting slogans demanding justice for the deaths of their peers and safe roads, reports our photojournalist from the spot.
Vehicular movement on DIT Road was halted due to the blockade on Rampura Bridge.
