The agitating Buet students today placed three-point demand including expulsion of the 25 charge-sheeted accused in Abrar Fahad murder case.

Other demands include punishment of those involved in the ragging incidents of dormitories like Ahsanullah, Titumir and Sher-e-Bangla.

The students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) revealed their demands at a press conference at the Shaheed Minar premises on the campus this afternoon.

They also demanded disciplinary provisions in order to stop students’ politics and ragging be included in the BUET Ordinance 1962 after approval of university syndicate.

The students during the press conference around 4:00 pm also said that they will accept the authority’s schedule of their term final examinations only after the first two demands are met.

They also said that they will seat for the exams if only the authorities fulfill their third demand at least seven days before the exam’s beginning.

The protesting students on October 15 declared boycotting classes and exams until the authorities expel those involved in Abrar killing.

Police pressed charges against 25 Buet students, mostly leaders and activists of the university’s BCL unit, in the case yesterday. Buet has suspended 19 of the accused while most of them have been expelled by the pro-Awami League student body.

The charge-sheet came 37 days after Abrar, the second-year student of the electrical and electronic engineering department, was beaten to death at the university’s Sher-e- Bangla Hall.
