A Dhaka court has placed Majedur Rahman Majed on a five-day remand in a case filed over the murder of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) student Abrar Fahad.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nivana Khayer Jesi passed the order on Saturday, after Detective Branch (DB) of Police Inspector Muhammad Wahiduzzaman, also the investigation officer of the case, produced him before the court with a 10-day remand plea for interrogation.

After the remand hearing, the court placed him on a five-day remand in the case.

Majed was arrested by a team police from Sylhet early Friday.

Majedur was the coordinator of Office and Finance at the Career Club of Buet, before he was permanently banned from the club on October 10, according to the club’s Facebook page.

Abrar, a second-year student of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department, was beaten to death inside the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall on October 7.

Chhatra League orchestrated the attack because it suspected that Abrar had some connection with Islami Chhatra Shibir, the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami. That allegation is yet to be proven.

Abrar's father filed a murder case against 19 people-- all Buet students--with Chawkbazar police station the same day.

Abrar's death sparked protest across Bangladesh.

In face of the protest at Buet, university authorities on Friday banned student politics from the campus and suspended the studentship of the 19 accused.

A total of 19 have been arrested as of Saturday. Of them, many have given their confessional statements before the court.
