BUET students vow to boycott classes, exams

2 Abrar killing accused on 3-day remand
STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

Students of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) yesterday refrained from attending classes and exams as part of their movement of boycotting academic activities until Abrar Fahad’s killers are permanently expelled from the varsity and law enforcers submit the charge-sheet in the murder case. According to the students, no classes and examinations were held after the boycott of academic activities was announced. Sayem, a spokesperson of the movement and fourth-year student of BUET, said the boycott would continue till their demand was met.

Earlier on Tuesday, the students withdrew their protests on the streets over Abrar Fahad’s murder as the university authorities accepted most of their demands. Following Abrar’s murder, the students vowed to end criminal and communal activities on the university campus. BUET vice-chancellor Prof Saiful Islam, Directorate of Students' Welfare (DSW) acting director Prof Mohammed Abdul Bashit, and provosts of all eight halls also took the oath along with them.

Meanwhile, a Dhaka court yesterday placed two accused in the Abrar murder case on a three-day remand each and sent another to jail on the competition of their five-day remand in the case.

Khandaker Tabakhkharul Islam Tanvir, a student of BUET's mechanical engineering batch-17, and Amit Saha, a student of BUET's civil engineering batch-16, were remanded for three days, while Hossain Mohammad Toha of the mechanical

engineering department was sent to jail. The court of metropolitan magistrate Abu Sayeed passed the order after Md Wahiduzzaman, investigating officer in the case, produced them before the court.

The Detective Branch inspector prayed for a seven-day remand for both Khandaker and Amit.

Abrar Fahad, 21, a second-year student of the electrical and electronic engineering department of BUET, was beaten to death at Sher-e-Bangla Hall allegedly by BCL leaders of the BUET unit.

Later, his father filed a murder case against 19 BUET students, mostly BCL leaders, and several other unnamed persons with the Chawkbazar police station in the capital.  

The brutal murder triggered a firestorm of protests on university campuses across the country.
