Rajshahi University students blocked the Dhaka-Rajshahi highway to press home their 3-point demand over an assault on a student allegedly by Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists.
The protesters brought out a procession on Saturday morning and later took position on the highway.
Their demands include permanent expulsion of the two BCL activists, who were involved in the assault and legal action against them.
On Friday midnight, the two Chhatra League activists allegedly beat up Sohrab Mia, a resident student of Shaheed Shamsujjoha Hall.
Sohrab is now undergoing treatment at Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital with head and hands injuries.
