The gate of the Dow University was closed during the demonstration. The protesters chanted slogans against the varsity administration and the PMC, demanding cancelation of the results.

Speaking on the occasion, Sattar said injustice had been done to the students and he supported their protest. However, the DUHS VC assured him that the question paper would be made public with the permission of the PMC president.
