Staff Reporter :
Several hundred students of the seven Dhaka University affiliated colleges blocked the streets in the capital's Nilkhet area for three hours demanding publication of their results of second year examinations.
The students of 2014-15 academic session took to the streets around 11:30am in support of their demand and continued their demonstration till 2:30pm.
The students withdrew blockade after getting the assurance from Dhaka University Vice-Chancellor Professor Akhtaruzzman. "The results of second year final examinations would be published by February and the third year final examination would be held in March," he assured.
City commuters and travellers suffered a lot due to the road blockade as it caused huge traffic congestion in the area.
The students urged the authorities to publish the results of second year final examinations under the 2014-15 session, arrange examinations for third-year students and publish an academic calendar for the seven colleges.
Students of seven colleges affiliated with the University of Dhaka blocked streets for three hours on Thursday to press for the announcement of examination results.
 "They are yet to publish the results of the examinations that were held in January last year,"     said Sarder Ismail of Kabi Nazrul College.
 "They have not printed any academic calendar for the seven colleges. We want the VC's intervention in these matters."
The seven old government colleges became affiliated with University of Dhaka once again in February 2017.
The affiliated colleges are Dhaka College, Eden Women's College, Government Shaheed Suhrawardy College, Kabi Nazrul Government College, Begum Badrunnesa Government Women's College, Mirpur Government Bangla College, and Government Titumir College.
