Police have arrested two more accused in the murder case of Buet student Abrar Fahad, raising the number of arrests in the case to 18. 

One of the duo, Majedur Rahman, was arrested in Sylhet around 4am on Friday, and the other, Md Shamim Billah, in Satkhira later in the day. 

A notice on the website of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), published on Friday, confirmed the arrest of Majedur, 21.  

Majedur was the coordinator of Office and Finance at the Career Club of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet), before he was permanently banned from the club on Thursday, according to the club’s Facebook page. 

Meanwhile, a team of the DMP Detective Branch arrested Shamim from his village home in Isakur village, under Bhurulia union in Shyamnagar upazila, Satkhira, Inspector (Investigation) Anisur Rahman of Shyamnagar police station confirmed. 

The detectives started for Dhaka with Shamim immediately afterwards, the inspector added. 

The 21-year-old is a naval architecture and marine engineering student at Buet. 

Abrar, a second-year student of electrical and electronic engineering at Buet, was beaten to death by several leaders and activists of the Buet unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League, the student wing of the ruling Awami League, on October 7. 

Chhatra League orchestrated the attack because it suspected that Abrar had some connection with Islami Chhatra Shibir, the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami. That allegation is yet to be proven. 

Abrar’s father Barkat Ullah filed a murder case accusing 19 Buet students with Chawkbazar police station on October 7 evening. 

On Friday, the Buet authorities suspended the studentship of the 19 accused.
