He said: "We strongly support the spirits of the young students in Bangladesh, who showcased few examples of detecting the irregularities related to road safety violations". Ambassador to Bangladesh Marcia Bernicat was returning from dinner at the time of the attack.

No details about the number of people injured in the clash have been given. The owners and workers of the bus companies have said they will not run their vehicles unless they feel safe after dozens of vehicles were either vandalized or torched in Dhaka and elsewhere. "The commission based system must be eliminated", said Mr Shafi, who was injured while protesting over the weekend.
