A Dhaka court has recorded the statements of a security guard and a canteen boy of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) in Abrar Fahad murder case.

Security guard Mohammad Mustafa and canteen boy Jahid Hossain Johny gave their statements as prosecution witnesses before the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Sharifuzzaman Ansari on Monday.

CMM Court General Recording Officer Sub-Inspector Mazharul Islam confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

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

Some Chhatra League leaders of the organization's Buet chapter have been accused of beating him to death for his alleged involvement with Islami Chhatra Shibir, the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami.

Abrar's father filed a murder case against 19 people at Chawkbazar police station on the day of the murder. 

Police have already detained 20 people in the case and several of them were remanded. Some of them gave confessional statements of their involvement with the murder.
