Police detained 10 students for interrogation while they were staging demonstrations at Shahbagh intersection in the capital on Thursday protesting the National University’s decision postponing all examinations.
Police picked them up in the morning when they took to the street to press home their demand, said Deputy Commissioner (Ramna zone) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police Sajjadur Rahman.
Earlier, the government altered its decision to postpone the examinations of the students of seven colleges affiliated with Dhaka University following student protest.

She said universities would reopen on May 24 and before that, resident halls will open on May 17.
Resident students, teachers and employees would be vaccinated against coronavirus by May 17, Dipu Moni said.
