Due to the troubles of the passengers and at the request of the university administration, the students stopped the blockade of the Barisal-Kuakata highway after two and a half hours.
On Friday (February 19) around 7:30 p.m., the students announced the suspension of the road blockade program. As a result, traffic began on the Barisal-Quakata highway.
Earlier, students from the University of Barisal organized a protest and blocked the Barisal-Quakata highway around 5 p.m. In the evening, the students performed a torchlight procession in the same way in order to fulfill their demands.
Raktim Hasan Amit, a 13-14 academic year student at the university’s law department who participated in the campaign, said, “If the attackers are not arrested within that time, students will block the road again from 8:30 a.m. on Saturday (February 20th).”
Several students who took part in the movement said that 48 hours had passed since the attack, but so far no attacker has been arrested. The case was filed by the university administration on Thursday (February 19th) afternoon. Disturbed students called the university administration by the names of the three people who led the attack. However, their names are not listed in the case for unknown reasons.
Barisal University Assistant Proctor Supravhat Haldar said: “Students blocked the road demanding the arrest of the attacker. They try to solve the problem by discussing with them.
Kotvali (OC) Chief Police Officer Nurul Islam said police are conducting multiple teams to arrest attackers on university students. However, they could not be arrested while hiding. We hope that it will be possible to quickly arrest those who were involved in the attack.
It should be noted that due to an argument with bus workers, several riots of university students in the city settlement of Rupatali were attacked at around 1 pm on Tuesday (February 18). 12 to 15 students were injured. Several were admitted to Sher-e-Bangla Medical School Hospital.
