The High Court has directed the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) to allow seven students recently expelled, to sit for exams.

A bench led by Justice JBM Hasan issued the order yesterday after hearing from the parties involved.

The students-Mirza Mohammad Galib, Zahidul Islam, Muntasir Ahmed, Asif Mahmud, Imtiaz Hossain, Anafalur Rahman, and Arnob Choudhury - were expelled for ragging fellow juniors.

The High Court bench also told the university authorities that if the students were found to be guilty of ragging, their exam grades can be cancelled, said Deputy Attorney General Noor Us Sadik. 

On November 22, the Buet authorities expelled 26 students for their alleged involvement in the Abrar Fahad murder case.

Of the 26 students, police have already pressed charges against 25 students in the murder case.

Abrar, 22, was found dead on a staircase of Buet’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall in the early hours of October 7, after he was taken to dormitory room 2011 around 8pm on October 6 and beaten mercilessly by Chhatra League men, late into the night.
