BCL demands 'highest punishment' to Abrar killers
Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) has called for the 'highest punishment' for those involved in the murder of BUET student Abrar Fahad through speedy trial.
The acting president of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Wednesday warned that it will give a "Bitting reply" if anyone tries to destabilise the country over BUET student Abrar Fahad's murder.
He demanded it at a press briefing on the Dhaka University campus on Wednesday.
Joy highlighted different measures taken by the organisation in the context of Abrar's murder and also raised several demands of the organisation.
"We urge the government to complete the trial process as soon as possible. The Abrar murder case should be brought under the Speedy Trial Act and the highest punishment for everyone involved in the murder should be ensured," said Joy.
Chhatra League has found that its leaders and activists who allegedly beat Abrar to death were "drunk" when they committed the crime. The student wing of the ruling party has already expelled 11 of its members in this connection.
"Eleven members were permanently expelled after the probe committee submitted its report ahead of the deadline," he said.
Abrar, a second-year Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) Department student, was beaten to death by some BCL leaders and activists at his residential hall early Monday.
