Md Barkatullah, father of murdered Bangladesh University of Engineering Technology (BUET) student Abrar Fahad, on Wednesday said that he was primarily satisfied with the court's verdict.

He made this remarks while talking to journalists after a Dhaka court sentenced 20 people to death and 5 others to life imprisonment in the much-talked-about case.

Mentioning that they will be fully satisfied when this verdict is carried out after being upheld by the High Court, he demanded the verdict be implemented at the soonest.

"They have been given exemplary punishment and it should be upheld in the High Court. Then the soul of Abrar will be at peace," he added.

Abrar, 22, a second-year student of EEE department of BUET, was allegedly beaten to death by some leaders of the then BUET unit of Chhatra League over his posts on Facebook.

Abrar’s father Barkatullah filed the case with Chawkbazar Police Station after the incident.
