Denying the allegation that the law enforcers assaulted Abrar Fahad’s brother, Kushtia police today claimed that Abrar Fayaz tried to attack Buet vice-chancellor during his visit to Kushtia yesterday.
Police said they did not raise hands on Abrar Fayaz, rather he attacked VC Saiful Islam.
“Abrar Fayaz tried to attack Buet vice-chancellor when he went to Abrar Fahad’s village home at Roydanga in Kumarkhali upazila in order to visit his family members,” reports our Kushtia correspondent quoting Superintendent of Police (SP) in Kushtia Tanvir Arafath.
“Police just prevented Fayaz, who was abusing the VC and at one stage tried to hit him,” the SP said.
“We have several video footages to confirm what actually happened during the period.” the SP added.
Kushtia police came up with the statement a day after Abrar Fayaz in a Facebook post alleged that Mostafizur Rahman, additional SP of Kushtia, raised hands on him.
Fayaz’s FB account is now deactivated, the SP told the reports.
“Police is trying to communicate with Fayaz,” he added.
The SP urged that all should conduct their activities patiently so nothing unpleasant occurs.
This correspondent could not add Abrar Fayaz’s comment as he was not willing to talk over the issue.
When contacted, Abrar Fahad’s father said he was not aware of Fayaz’s FB post.
Buet Vice-chancellor Prof Saiful Islam faced protests from locals when he went to visit Abrar Fahad’s home in Kushtia yesterday.
He went to Abrar’s home, but could not go past the gate due to obstruction by a large number of people.
The protesters demanded his resignation for Buet’s failure to stop such a gruesome incident.
When the VC was about to leave the place, the wife of one of Abrar’s cousins laid down in front of his car. Police then removed her.
