The tribunal framed charges in the case afresh on September 8

A special tribunal in Dhaka on Thursday adjourned the hearing of a case lodged over the murder of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) student Abrar Fahad, till October 24.

Judge Abu Zafar Md Kamaruzzaman of Dhaka Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 passed the order as the prosecution failed to conclude its arguments in the case.

Earlier in the day, Prosecutor Abu Abdullah Bhuiyan concluded his part of arguments, followed by Chief Prosecutor Mosharraf Hossain Kazal. The chief prosecutor, however, failed to conclude the arguments.

The tribunal framed charges in the case afresh on September 8.

A total 46 out of 60 prosecution witnesses have testified in the sensational case.

On November 13, 2019, Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Court took into cognizance the charge sheet in the case filed by Detective branch (DB) of police against 25 accused. The case was later transferred to the speedy trial tribunal, allowing a plea of Abrar's father.

On September 15 last year, the tribunal had framed charges against all 25 accused in the case.

According to the police, of the 25 accused, 11 took part in the gruesome murder directly and the other played role in the crime one way or another. Of those arrested, eight have given confessional statements before court.

BUET students and the varsity authorities found the seemingly lifeless body of Abrar, 22, on the first-floor stairs of Sher-e-Bangla Hall and rushed him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), where doctors declared him dead at around 6.30am on October 7, 2019.

He was allegedly beaten to death by a couple of leaders of the then BUET unit of Chhatra League over his posts on Facebook.

Later, Abrar's father filed the case with Chawkbazar police station against 19 accused.
