Another accused in the case lodged over the murder of Bangladesh University Engineering and Technology (Buet) student Abrar Fahad, has given his confessional statement before a court.

ASM Nazmus Sadat, student of 17th batch of Department of Mechanical Engineering, made the confessional statement before the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sarafuzzaman Ansari.

After recording his statement under section 164, the court sent Sadat to jail, reports BSS.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Morshed Al Mamun Bhuiyan on October 16 placed Sadat on a five-day remand in the case as investigation officer and detective branch (DB) inspector Wahiduzzaman produced Sadat before court and pleaded for placing him on a 10-day remand.

Sadat was arrested on early October 15 from Katla Bazar area under Birampur Police Station in Dinazpur as he was trying to flee to neighbouring India.

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.
