Abrar’s murder: Charges pressed against 25

:: Peoples Time Online ::

Detectives today pressed charges against 25 accused in the Buet student Abrar Fahad murder case.

Investigation officer MD Wahiduzaman of Detective Branch of Police submitted the charge sheet to Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Dhaka.

Abrar, a second-year student of electrical and electronic engineering department of Buet, died after he was brutally beaten allegedly by some Chhatra League men at Sher-e-Bangla hall of the university on early hours of October 7.

The incident triggered a firestorm of protests on campuses across the country. Many took to social media to demand justice for Abrar.

Law enforcers suspect Abrar was attacked because of one of his recent Facebook posts, which seemed critical of some recent deals with India.

Amid protest on the campus, Buet authorities October 11 banned all political activities on the campus and suspended 19 students, mostly leaders of the university’s BCL unit, accused in Abrar Fahad killing case.
