Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed her anger at the killing of BUET student Abrar Fahad and said persons involved in the killing will not be spared.
She was annoyed at BUET VC Prof Saiful Islam's late appearance on the campus, according to sources. The Prime Minister asked the leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League to stay alert so that none can utilize the incident to give it political colour. She directed them to stand by the general students protesting the killing of their fellow student.
She said Awami League government and BCL won't take the side of the culprits involved in the murder.
The Prime Minister said these at a meeting with senior AL and BCL leaders at her official residence Ganobhaban last night.
AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader, Joint general secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Abdur Rahman, organising secretaries BM Mozammel Haque, AFM Bahauddin Nasim, AKM Enamul Haque Shamim, Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury, Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury Nowfel, BCL President Al Nahian Khan Joy and General Secretary Lekhak Bhattacharya were present.
The Prime Minister said it cannot be tolerated in any way that a person was killed just for posting a status on Facebook. She said she has already instructed the law enforcement agencies to take steps to ensure maximum punishment for the culprits.
Sheikh Hasina asked the BCL leaders to hold a press conference on the incident. BCL will hold a press conference at Madhur Canteen on Dhaka University campus at 11:00am today, sources said.
