Safe road demo: Students to hold symbolic funeral procession tomorrow

Protesting students will hold a symbolic funeral procession in Dhaka’s Shahbagh and form human chains across the country tomorrow demanding safe roads.

State University student Inzamul Haque Ramim made the announcement while speaking on behalf of the protesters during their demonstration on Rampura Bridge this morning.

“We will bring out a symbolic procession carrying corpses from Shahbag tomorrow to press home our nine-point demands,” Inzamul said.

Meanwhile, students across the country will carry out peaceful human chain programs at their convenience, he added.

The protesters also threatened to wage stronger movement across the country if students’ demands are not met by December 10, he added.

Around 11 in the morning, the students of multiple educational institutions took positions on the sidewalk near Rampura Bridge.

They also showed red cards in protest of irregularities and corruption on the roads.

Additional law enforcers were deployed at the scene.
