Anik, was the information and research affairs secretary of BUET Chhatra League unit, and one of the 19 people accused in Abrar murder case.

Earlier on October 11, Meftahul Islam Zion confessed to a magistrate that he saw his accomplices were beating the victim inside a room of Sher-e-Bangla Hall on October 6.

Abrar, a second-year student of Electrical and Electronic Engineering department of Buet, died after he was brutally beaten allegedly by some Chhatra League men at a room of the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall.

Later, Abrar’s father Barkat Ullah filed a murder case against 19 with the Chawkbazar Police Station.

The incident triggered a firestorm of protest that dished out all most all educational institutes across the country. Apart from this, many people took to the social media demanding justice for Abrar Fahad.

Law enforcers suspect, Abrar was attacked because of one of his recent Facebook posts, which seemed critical of some recent deals with India.
