Law Minister Anisul Huq yesterday said two lawyers will be included in the prosecution team for conducting the Buet student Abrar Fahad murder case, as per his family’s wish.
“The trial of Abrar Fahad murder will be held at the Speedy Trial Tribunal for finishing its proceedings at the earliest. I have earlier said the government will take necessary steps so that the trial of this case is held at the tribunal and we are going ahead as per the plan,” he said.
The law minister said this while talking to reporters after a meeting at his Gulshan office with Abrar’s father Md Barkatullah.
He said Abrar’s family had proposed names of some lawyers for the prosecution team for conducting the murder case, and among them, two lawyers will be included in the prosecution.
“They are satisfied with the current pace at which the case proceedings are running. All necessary steps will be taken so that the trial proceedings of the case are finished lawfully and without any error,” Anisul Huq said.
Earlier on November 13, Minister Anisul told reporters at his secretariat office that his office has kept a prosecution team ready for moving the murder case quickly.
Abrar Fahad, 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.
