Abrar murder: Buet students end protest, takes oath


Dhaka, October 16: 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.

Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr 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 Oct 7.

His murder triggered protests at the top engineering university and brought academic activities to a grinding halt. VC Islam later acceded to the protesters’ demands and banned organisational politics, among others, on the campus.
