Staff Reporter  :
The Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) men, who beat up Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) student Abrar Fahad to death, did not allow him to drink water, said ASM Nazmus Sadat, an accused in the murder case.
Talking to journalists before hearing of a court on remand prayer against him, Sadat said that his senior brothers -- Mehedi Hasan Robein, Anik Sarkar, Ifti Mosharraf Shakal, Muzahidur Rahman Muzahid and Moniruzzaman Monir -- beat up Abrar mercilessly.
"They (the BCL men) did not allow Abrar to drink water when he (Abrar) prayed for water and they did not allow him (Sadat) and others to take the victim to hospital for treatment," Sadat, also a BCL activist, said.
Sadat also said that Monir asked him to bring Abrar to another room from his room at Sher-e-Bangla Hall on the night of October 6 before launching the attack on Abrar.
"Monir ordered me and others to bring Abrar from his room and then we brought him from his room. Around 12:30 am, I returned to my room," Sadat added.    DB Inspector Md Wahiduzzaman and also the Investigation Officer of the case produced Sadat before the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Morshed Al Mamun Bhuiyan seeking 10-day remand prayer. After the hearing, they placed Sadat on a five-day remand.
Detectives arrested Nazmus Sadat in Dinajpur early Tuesday, while he was trying to flee to India. He is a batch-17 student of BUET's mechanical Engineering Department.
Abrar, a second-year student of BUET's Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department, was beaten to death by a group of BCL men at the university's Sher-e-Bangla Hall between 7:30pm on October 6 and 2:30am on October 7. Later, his father filed a murder case against 19 BUET students, mostly BCL leaders of the BUET unit, and several other unnamed accused with Chawkbazar police station. The gruesome murder triggered a firestorm of protest on university campuses across the country. So far, 20 people have been arrested in connection with the murder.
