Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) authorities have punished 14 students on different terms for their involvement in ragging, in the aftermath of the murder of Abrar Fahad and the subsequent protests.

Eight of these students were expelled from academic activities on different terms and expelled from Titumir Hall for life, according to a press release issued by the university yesterday.

The ragging took place in different instances in the past at the university’s Titumir Hall.

Buet Residence and Discipline Board took the decision after a report was submitted by a committee formed to investigate the recent ragging at the dormitory.

The other six students were expelled from the hall on different terms over the same charges.

Another student was also warned by the board so that such incidents do not repeat in future.

On November 28, nine other students were suspended from Suhrawardy and Ahsan Ullah halls on allegations of ragging.

The board also suspended 21 students from their respective dormitories for different terms and alerted them to not repeat such act in future.
