Witnesses said madrasah students started demonstrations around 5:30pm and threw brickbats at the police station and also blocked Chattogram-Rangamati road for an hour, reports UNB.

Hathazari Madrasah authorities asked the students through loudhailers to go back as they have no decision to stage demonstrations today, sources said.

However, all the shops remained shut in the area.

Contacted over mobile phone, the OC of Hathazari Police Station hanged the phone saying ,  “Busy now,  will speak to you later.”
