BUET spends Tk 55 lakh for conducting Abrar's case: VC

Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) has spent Tk 55 lakh so far to conduct the murder case of its student Abrar Fahad.

It was disclosed by BUET vice-chancellor Prof. Dr. Satya Prasad Majumder while talking to reporters at BUET on Wednesday.

Asked whether BUET would continue to provide assistance to continue for conducting the case in future, he said, "We have provided as much as Abrar's family has sought from us. We have been providing Tk 75,000 every month. They are facing financial crisis. Because of it, the BUET has been providing Tk 75,000 to Abrar's family each month since July 1 after I have been appointed as the vice-chancellor."

Besides, the BUET has provided the legal aid, lawyers' fees, and transportation cost for taking students to the court as witnesses, expenses for staying in Dhaka.

"BUET has so far spent Tk 55 lakh. Apart from it, the university has been providing Tk 75,000 each month, which will be provided over the next 12 years. If he (Abrar's father) continue to seek this support from BUET in future, we will certainly provide him,"  Prof. Dr. Satya Prasad Majumder said.

He said, "We have extended our solidarity towards Abrar's parents. We have provided them as much as we could. We have provided both legal and financial assistance, and continue to do it in future."

Earlier, a tribunal in Dhaka sentenced 20 accused to death in BUET student Abrar Fahad murder case.
