Abrar, a second-year student of electrical and electronic engineering department of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet), died after he was brutally beaten by some Chhatra League men at Sher-e-Bangla hall of the university in the early hours of October 7 last year.

The victim’s father Barkatullah filed a case with Chawkbazar Police Station in Dhaka against 19 students of BUET after the murder.

The killing triggered a firestorm of protests on campuses across the country. Amid the protests, Buet authorities on October 11 banned all political activities on the campus and suspended 19 students accused in the Abrar killing case.

On November 13 last year, the Detective Branch of police submitted a charge sheet against 25 Buet students in the case. Of them, 22 accused are now in jail and three have been absconding since the incident took place.
