Abrar Murder

BUET students vow to resist terrorism, communal forces


BUET students, protesting against the murder of Abrar Fahad, formally ended their demonstration on Wednesday with a vow to resist terrorism and communal forces on the campus.

Around 350 students of various departments took part the oath-taking ceremony at Buet auditorium around 1:30pm. Rafia Rezawana, a student of 17th batch, read out the oath, reports UNB.

Vice-chancellor professor Saiful Islam, along with faculty deans and hall provosts attended the programme.

Abrar, a second-year electrical and electronic engineering student, was beaten to death, reportedly by Chhatra League activists at the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall on 7 October.

His murder triggered protests at the top engineering university and brought academic activities to a grinding halt.

VC Saiful Islam later acceded to the protesters’ demands and banned organisational politics, among others, on the campus.
