A Dhaka court has deferred the charge framing hearing against 25 students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) in the murder case of student Abrar Fahad.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Dhaka Metropolitan Session Judge’s Court on Thursday deferred the charge framing hearing on February 17.

After the hearing, the court said the case will be transferred to the speedy trial tribunal for quick disposal. However, the gazette notification from the ministry of home affairs in this regard is yet to reach the court.

Additional Public Prosecutor Taposh Kumar Pal told the Dhaka Tribune that the 22 accused were present before the court and rest three were absconding.

Abrar, 22, was found dead on a staircase of Buet’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall in the early hours of October 7. He was taken to the dormitory’s Room No 2011 around 8pm on October 6 and beaten mercilessly by Chhatra League men late into the night.

Abrar’s father Barkat Ullah filed the murder case at Chawkbazar police station against 19 people, mostly leaders, and activists of Buet Chhatra League unit.

Amid students’ protest, the university on October 11 banned all political activities on campus and suspended the 19 students accused in the case.

On November 13, police submitted a charge sheet against 25 students of Buet — most of them, Bangladesh Chhatra League leaders and activists — in a case filed over Abrar’s murder.
