Witness deposition in the murder case filed over the death of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) student Abrar Fahad has been deferred until October 5.

Dhaka Speedy Trial Tribunal Judge Abu Zafor Mohammad Kamruzzaman passed the order on Sunday as Abrar’s father Barkatullah, the case’s plaintiff, is sick, said Advocate Manzurul Alam.

On Sept 15, the tribunal framed charges against 25 accused.

Three of the accused — Jishan, Rafid, and Tanim — remain absconding.

Abrar, 21, a second-year student of electrical and electronic engineering, was beaten to death reportedly by then Bangladesh Chhatra League leaders at Sher-e-Bangla Hall of the university.

He was found dead on the staircase of the hall in the early hours of October 7 last year. His murder sparked a nationwide outcry.

On November 13, the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) submitted a charge sheet before the court. On November 18, the court accepted the charge sheet against 25 accused.

On January 13 this year, the case was shifted to the Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court from Dhaka Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court. 

On March 12, the murder case was moved to Dhaka Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 after Abrar’s parents met the law minister and urged to shift the case to a speedy trial tribunal.
