Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq has said the country’s legal system would not spare the people involved in the murder of Abrar Fahad, a second-year student of Electric and Electronics Engineering (EEE) Department of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).
The minister said these while addressing a children dialogue marking the Children Rights Week and 30th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, at National Shishu Academy in Dhaka on Sunday.
Save the Children Director Abdullah Al Mamun gave welcome speech at the function while Additional Secretary of Women and Children Affairs Ministry Qamrun Nahar was present as special guest.
“The culprits would be given maximum punishment under the existing law,” the minister said.
Anisul at the function answered questions of child representatives who came from across the country.
“Sheikh Hasina’s government has set an example by finishing Razan murder trial of Sylhet and Rakib murder trial of Khulna in quickest possible time,” the minister also said.
“The trial over murder of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan is also being completed swiftly as the judgement is waiting to be pronounced,” the minister further said.
While talking about ragging culture in educational institutions, Anisul said it is definitely a crime and the victim should instantly let concerned authorities and the guardians know about this.
“If the authorities of the concerned institutes do not take proper action, they too shall be brought to justice,” he added.
