Buet authorities expelled 26 students including Bitu permanently on 22 Nov 2019 for their alleged involvement in Abrar’s murder. However, Bitu was not named in the police charge sheet and recently secured a 'stay order' from the court against his expulsion.
Bitu told UNB on 25 May that he had not been named in the charge sheet. “Buet expelled me for not helping in the investigation process. Recently, I got a stay order from the court against my expulsion and returned to class maintaining all procedures. But I won’t join further classes in this situation," he said.
Abrar, a second-year student of the electrical and electronic engineering department, died after he was beaten allegedly by some Chhatra League men at Sher-e-Bangla Hall of the university in the early hours of 7 Oct 2019.
