A group of Dhaka University (DU) students blocked the key Shahbagh intersection for the second consecutive day on Thursday demanding an end to the university’s affiliation with seven colleges.

Imdadul Haque, a first-year student of DU, said they will continue the movement until the university accepts their demand.

The affiliated colleges are Dhaka College, Eden Mohila College, Government Shaheed Suhrawardy College, Kabi Nazrul Government College, Begum Badrunnesa Government Women's College, Mirpur Government Bangla College and Government Titumir College.

About 500 students kept the key intersection blocked from 11am-2pm, causing severe traffic congestion.

Traffic movement from New Market to Matshya Bhaban and Shahbagh to Farmgate remained halted during this period.

The protesters urged DU authorities to accept their demands that include publishing results within two months of the exam and banning mass-transport on the campus.
