Students to boycott academic activities until expulsion of Abrar killers

--Demonstration postponed

--Mass swearing programme tomorrow

The agitating students of Buet today decided to boycott all academic activities from tomorrow until the university authorities expel the killers of Abrar Fahad.

However, they also decided to postpone their demonstration on the campus from tomorrow as the university authorities have already taken some noticeable steps in realising their 10-point demand.

The protesters came up with the decision at a press conference on the campus this evening, two days after they relaxed their demonstration for admission test held yesterday.

“We will not take part in any academic activities until the university authorities expel the accused based on the findings of the charge sheet [of Abrar murder case],” a protester said at the press conference.

DMP recently said that the charge sheet in Abrar murder case would be submitted to a court in the first week of next month.

The protester also said the students and the teachers of the engineering university will hold a mass swearing tomorrow to resist criminals and fundamental forces on the campus.

Amid protest, Buet authorities on Friday banned political activities on the campus and suspended 19 Chhatra League leaders and activists from the university in connection with Abrar murder.


Abrar, a second-year student of Buet’s electrical and electronic engineering department, was beaten to death by a group of Chhatra League leaders at the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall between 7:00 pm on October 6 and 2:30 am on October 7.

The murder triggered a firestorm of protests on university campuses across the country. Many took to social media to demand justice for Abrar.

Law enforcers suspect, Abrar was attacked because of one of his recent Facebook posts, which seemed critical of some recent deals with India.

Later, the agitating students placed a 10-point demand to the authorities and threatened to go for a tougher movement if the demands are not met immediately.
