DHAKA: Students in Bangladesh staged protests and blocked major roads on Monday after an undergraduate was beaten to death, allegedly by ruling party activists, for criticizing the government over a water-sharing deal with India.

Protests broke out at several universities in Dhaka and the northern city of Rajshahi following the killing of Abrar Fahad of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.

Students chanted slogans demanding “justice” and blocked major roads in the two cities. Teachers joined some of the protests.
