The clash took place between police and students of North South University (NSU), East West University (EWU) and Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) in Bashundhara Residential Area on Monday as the students gathered there to protest the Jhigatola attacks on demonstrators by the alleged ruling party men on Saturday and Sunday.

Police arrested 22 students in the area for their alleged involvement of attacking police. On Tuesday, police place them at court for remand. The court granted two days remand of 22 students of the private universities in two separate cases.
The court on Thursday denied bail to 22 students of private universities, who were arrested    in two separate cases filed over vandalism and attacks on police, upon completion of their two-day remand.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sattyabrata Shikder denied the appeal from the defence lawyers seeking bail and sent the students to jail instead.
