Students belonging to different educational institutions in Chittagong took to the streets on Wednesday, demanding justice for two students killed in a recent road accident in Dhaka. 

After gathering in front of the Chittagong Press Club, the students staged a demonstration there. The protesters also blocked Jamalkhan road for some time, but later lifted the blockade complying with the request of the police. 

Students from BAF Shaheen College, Dewanhat City Corporation College, BEPZA College, Government Hazi Muhammad Mohsin College, and Government City College participated in the demonstration. 

Carrying placards, the protesters chanted slogans against Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan. 

"We want the removal of the shipping minister for sheltering the killer drivers," said a student, on condition of anonymity. Another student told the Dhaka Tribune: “We took to the streets to ensure road safety across the country.” 

Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib, students of the college section of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin School and College, were killed as a Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan bus ploughed through some students in front of Kurmitola General Hospital on Airport Road.
