Students have postponed their protests demanding safe roads due to inclement weather caused by depression in the Bay of Bengal.
The protesting students, however, said they would resume their movement once the weather improves.
Ignoring torrential rain, students from various educational institutions gathered on Rampura Bridge with a procession, protesting the death of students in road accidents around 12:30pm on Monday.
Wearing black badges and gags, they then started their programme to press home their 11-point demand-- including road safety.
They also formed a human chain on the sidewalk and continued their protest until 1pm.
Before concluding Monday's programme, HSC examinee of Khilgaon Model College, Sohagi Samia, said, "We are not holding any programme on Tuesday due to hostile weather."
"We will resume our programme once the weather improves," she added.
They will arrange some specific programmes including a bicycle procession to and from the educational institutions attended by Nayeem and Mainuddin, two road accident victims in the city, a candlelight programme to commemorate them, and a rally with teachers.
Regarding today's human chain wearing black badges, Samia said, "So many road accidents take place but the administration is always silent. To protest this silence of the administration, we held a silent movement today wearing black badges."
"We will continue our protests until our demands are met," she said.
On Saturday, the protesting students who have been innovative in their protest campaigns staged a red card demonstration against corruption and mismanagement on the city streets.
They had satirical placards and a coffin march on Sunday.
On 18 November, students started their demonstrations demanding half bus fares and road safety.
Recent road accidents that killed two students – Notre Dame College student Nayeem Hasan and SSC candidate Mainuddin Islam Durjoy in Rampura and Gulistan – fuelled the movement that is now spreading from Dhaka to other cities, including Gazipur and Chattogram.
