Over 30 people including journalists and students were injured on Tuesday as students of Dhaka College locked into a series of clashes again with traders of New Market at Nilkhet intersection in the city.
The whole area turned into a battleground after a fresh clash erupted between them around 10 am as a sequel to a clash Monday midnight, said witnesses.
Of the injured, some 24 people were admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital, said a DMCH source.
The clashes disrupted vehicular movement from Science Lab to Azimpur and created a long tailback on Mirpur Road and adjacent areas.
Vehicular movement returned to normalcy around 6 pm as police dispersed the Dhaka College students after lobbing tear gas shells.
Shop owners in the areas kept their shutters down since morning.
