Mizan has been accused of beating his roommate Abrar Fahad to death on the night of October 6 inside a Buet hall

A Dhaka court has placed a suspect, in the murder case of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) student Abrar Fahad, on a five-day remand.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Baki Billah passed the order on Wednesday, after investigation officer M Wahiduzzaman of the Detective Branch (DB) of police produced accused Mizanur Rahman Mizan before the court on Wednesday.

Mizan, a third-year student of the 16th batch of water resources engineering department, was Abrar's roommate in Sher-E-Bangla Hall in the Buet campus. 

Police pleaded for a seven-day remand, upon which the court granted a five-day remand.   

During the remand plea, the investigation officer mentioned that on the night of October 6, Mizan, alongside the other accused, called Abrar from his room around 8:05pm, and took him to room no 2005. 

Then Abrar was beaten to death indiscriminately with cricket stumps, for hours, until 2:30am. 

Wahiduzzaman said: "Abrar was beaten to death on the spot, and after it was confirmed that he was dead, the accused [Mizan] dumped his body on the stairs to the second floor of the hall."

He said police needed a seven-day remand to interrogate the accused to get to the bottom of the matter. 

The detective branch detained Mizan from Sher-E-Bangla Hall on October 10.

Till date, 20 people have been arrested in connection to Abrar's murder.

Abrar, a second year student of electrical and electronic engineering department of the university, was beaten to death on October 7.

Some Chhatra League leaders have been accused of beating him for his alleged involvement with Islami Chhatra Shibir, the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami.

On the same day, Abrar's father Barkat Ullah filed a murder case with Chawkbazar police station.

Abrar’s death sparked massive protest all across Bangladesh, with the protesters demanding justice for Abrar and capital punishment for the murderers.
