A Dhaka court today placed Mizanur Rahman, an accused of Buet student Abrar Fahad murder case, on a five-day remand.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Baki Billah passed the order after Detective Branch Inspector Md Wahiduzzaman produced Mizanur, a roommate of the victim, with a seven-day remand prayer in the case.
Meanwhile, eight accused have given their confessional statements narrating horrific descriptions of torturing Abrar to death.
Abrar, a second-year student of Electrical and Electronic Engineering department of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet), died after he was brutally beaten allegedly by some Chhatra League men at dormitory of the university between October 6 night and the early hours of October 7.
The incident triggered a firestorm of protests on campuses across the country. Many took to the social media to demand justice for Abrar.
Abrar’s father filed a murder case against 19 students of the university, mostly Buet BCL leaders, and several other unnamed accused with Chawkbazar Police Station on October 7.
Police have already arrested 20 people, including 16 FIR-named accused, in connection with the murder case.
