Hundreds of students of Jahangirnagar University (JU) blocked the Dhaka-Aricha highway near the university campus today to protest the reinstatement of the quota system in government jobs.

JU students started their protest march from the campus and took position at the Dairy Gate area around 11:00 am. By noon, students were chanting slogans in support of the abolishment of the quota system, reports our Savar correspondent from the spot.

The blockade caused significant traffic congestion, with hundreds of vehicles stuck on both sides of the highway. AFM Sayeed, the officer-in-charge of Ashulia Police Station, said, "We are trying to convince the students to clear the road."

"Students have blocked the road, and despite our efforts, they are not cooperating," he told the media.
