The man is none other than Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed. His car was crossing the Bangla Motor intersection as he was heading home via Shahbagh after a meeting at the secretariat on Wednesday afternoon.
The students who launched a campaign for safe roads stopped his car for about 15 minutes.
At one point, Tofail got down from his car and tried to speak to them. The students then shouted a slogan — “We Want Justice”.
Police requested the protesters to let the car go, but they did not budge.
