Graduate students continued their protests in Dhaka against the leakage of English question paper of bachelor's degree examinations under the National University and demanded punishment to those involved in the scam.

Several hundred students of Dhaka College on Tuesday took to the street in front of their college at about 11:00 am and blocked traffic for about an hour on the Mirpur Road between Nilkhet and Science Laboratory. The agitating students placed a three-point charter of demands, which include withdrawal of the cancellation of the November 11 English (compulsory) examination and 'auto promotion' giving all the students 45 per cent marks.

 The students must not pay for the question paper leakage, which was a fault of the National University, they argued, demanding punitive actions against the people responsible for the scam. The blockade was withdrawn at about 12:15 pm after some teachers intervened.

A group of students of Government Titumir College also demonstrated against the question paper leakage, blocking Mohakhali-Gulshan-1 road for about half an hour from 12:30 pm. There was no unpleasant incident reported during the demonstrations. National University authorities earlier postponed the examinations, scheduled for January 12 and 13, amid allegations of question paper leakage. The examinations will no be held on January 29 and 30. A three-member committee is probing the scam.
