Abrar murder

Petition filed for Tk 10cr compensation to family

UNB, Dhaka

A writ petition was filed with the High Court yesterday seeking Tk 10 crore compensation for the family of Buet student Abrar Fahad who was beaten to death at his dormitory. The petition, filed by Supreme Court lawyer AKM Fayez on behalf of lawyer Shahin Babu, also sought judicial inquiry into the murder and directives to ensure safety of the victim’s family.  

The Buet authorities, home secretary, education secretary, University Grants Commission, Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner and Chawkbazar Police Station’s officer-in-charge were made defendants.

Meanwhile, Accepting the demands of the protesting

students just to pacify them will be a betrayal to the blood of Abrar Fahad, said his distraught father on Saturday.

 “I don’t’ want to see Buet authorities only to take decisions on paper. I want their implementation,” Barkatullah said in his reaction to Buet banning organisational politics on the campus after accepting the demands of the students.

Talking to journalists, he said Buet authorities had taken several decisions to ban ragging on the campus but none of them were implemented. “My son wouldn’t have lost his life if the previous decisions had been implemented,” he said.

Abrar, a second-year EEE student, was beaten to death last week reportedly by leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League’s Buet unit.

Trials in cases filed over such student deaths take a long time and in most cases, the accused get out on bail and victim’s families are threatened and pressurised to drop the case, Abrar’s father said.

“Most often, we see only six of the accused among 10 get punished and the rest are acquitted.
