Another accused sent to jail

A Dhaka court yesterday sent another accused to jail in a case filed over murder of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) student Abrar Fahad. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mahmuda Akhter sent SM Mahmud Setu to jail as investigation officer (IO) and detective branch (DB) inspector Wahiduzzaman produced him before the court after end of his four-day remand in the case. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Jasim Uddin on October 28 placed Setu on a four-day remand as the IO pleaded for his seven-day remand.

Detective branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) arrested Setu from capital’s Bangla Motor area on October 27. DB sources said although name of Setu was not there in the case filed over the gruesome murder, but many accused have taken his name in their confessional statements. BUET students and the varsity authorities found seemingly lifeless body of Abrar, 22, on first-floor stairs of Sher-e-Bangla Hall and rushed him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), where doctors declared him dead at around 6.30 am.
