Protesting attack on temples and mandaps in parts of the country, a section of Dhaka University students blocked the Shahbagh intersection on Monday morning.
They took position on the street at about 11am and were continuing their demonstration defying rain.
The protesting students were chanting slogans demanding exemplary punishment of the attackers.
A long tailback was created as vehicular movement from Shahbagh towards Paltan, Science Lab, Banglamotor and TSC remained halted following the students' protest on the roads.
The students also called for the formation of a separate Ministry to handle affairs related to minority groups.
Their demands include to repair the damaged temples across the country, to pay compensation to the families of the deceased, to ensure the punishment of the attackers.
The protesters declared that they will continue their protest until their demands are met.
