A group of students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) who support student politics and Chhatra League, have alleged that they are being bullied and threatened online on a regular basis.

Six students made the allegation at a press conference in front of Buet’s MA Rashid administrative building on Wednesday afternoon. 

The six students are Ashikul Alam, Sagar Biswas, Aritra Ghosh, and Argha Das, Tanveer Swapnil, and Bishnudatta Chandg.

Ashikul Alam said: "We are being threatened. Today, we have submitted a written application with all the proofs to the VC sir. We have also mentioned the names of others who are victims of this threat in our written application so that this can be stopped."

Mentioning that when Buet student Arif Raihan Dwip was murdered, he was also subjected to bullying on social media in the same way prior to his murder, Ashiq said: "Even after he did not back down, he was brutally killed on our campus. Similarly, our former Buet Chhatra League general secretary, Tanmoy Ahmed was also hacked to death. The same thing is happening to us. So we are also worried."

"We can not accept the threats and bullying we are facing on social media. We are being threatened with death. We are being threatened publicly and privately. Calls are being made to our families saying, Keep an eye on your child, or you won't find them later. Our photos are being sent to various banned groups, including Basher Kella, and we have included screenshots of all the evidence in our written application. Our lives are being threatened by those groups.”

He claimed: "When the students were protesting, there was no mention of Hizb ut-Tahrir, Shibir, or Chhatra Dal anywhere. Only demands were made for the expulsion of Imtiaz and others from the Chhatra League who were present there."

"We are concerned about our security. The way we are being bullied on social media, we can't tolerate it any longer," he added further.
