Fahad's killers were 'drunken': BCL probe body

Fahad's killers were 'drunken': BCL probe body

The accused leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) in 'drunken stupor' beat up BUET student Abrar Fahad that led to his death.

The BCL-formed probe committee revealed this on Wednesday after investigating the incident.

The ruling party's student body also raised question about the 'indiferent role' of the hall administration during the torture on Abrar Fahad.

Abrar Fahad, 21, a second year student of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), was found dead at his dormitory Sher-e-Bangla Hall early Monday.

The dormitory students alleged that Fahad was beaten to death by the university unit Chhatra League men at one stage of questioning. They suspected Fahad a Shibir activist following his facebook post over Bangladesh's recent deals with India.

The BCL formed a two-member committee on the same day to probe the killing.

Police have, so far, arrested 13 people, including 10 BCL men, following a case filed by Fahad's father Barkat Ullah accusing 19 people.
