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.
