The recording deposition in BUET student Abrar Fahad murder case has been deferred following his father's illness.
Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 Judge Abu Jafar Md Kamruzzaman on Sunday fixed October 5-27 for next deposition of the case as state counsel filed a petition today seeking time.
The state counsel said, "Fahad's father Barkat Ullah, a plaintiff of the case, is infected with jaundice. He is present in the dock but not in condition to give deposition."
On September 15, a Dhaka court ordered to resume the trail of the case through framing charges against 25 accused. On the same day, the court fixed today for the deposition.
Abrar Fahad, 21, a second year student of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), was found dead at his dormitory Sher-e-Bangla Hall in the early hours of October 7 last year.
Barkat Ullah filed the murder case with Chawk Bazar Police Station on October 7, 2019, accusing 19 people.
Police, however, arrested 22 people in this connection. Of them, eight gave confessional statement in court.
On March 12 this year, Fahad murder case was shifted to Dhaka Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 after his parents met the Law Minister and urged to shift the case to a Speedy Trial Tribunal.
