A fresh 72-hour nationwide hartal, called by the BNP-led 20-party alliance, is underway on Sunday to press for an election under a non-party administration and to protest government's repressive acts.
The hartal began around 6am, will end 6am Wednesday.
On Friday, BNP joint secretary general Salahuddin Ahmed in a statement announced the fresh spell of the shutdown programme.
Presence of motorised vehicles was almost normal on the capital streets.
A large number of law enforcers remained deployed in different parts of the capital to fend off any untoward situation.
