A Dhaka court yesterday placed two accused in Buet student Abrar Fahad murder case on fresh remand.
Amit Saha, a batch-16 student of the university’s civil engineering department, and Khandaker Tabakhkharul Islam Tanvir of batch-17 of mechanical engineering department, were placed on three-day remand each.
Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Sayed passed the order after Inspector Md Wahiduzzaman of Detective Branch of police, also the investigation officer (IO) of the case, produced the accused before the court on completion of their five-day remand.
The IO sought seven-day remand for the accused stating that police needed more information from them.
He said the accused had already provided the law enforcers with vital information in connection with the murder and the information was being verified.
Amit was the deputy law secretary of Buet BCL. He was expelled from the organisation on October 14 for his involvement in the murder. Tanvir was also an activist of the same unit.
The same court also rejected the bail petition of another accused in the case -- Hossain Mohammad Toha of Buet’s mechanical engineering department -- yesterday and sent him to jail on completion of his five-day remand.
Abrar, a batch-17 student of electrical and electronic engineering department, was beaten with cricket stumps and skipping ropes for hours by BCL leaders at the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall between October 6 night and the early hours of October 7, leading to his death.
His father filed a murder case against 19 Buet students, mostly Buet BCL leaders, and several other unnamed accused, with Chawkbazar police station on October 7.
Detectives have arrested 20 people, including 16 FIR-named accused, in connection with the murder.
