The teachers and students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) have vowed to keep their campus free from all sorts of terrorism and communalism at any cost.

Buet vice-chancellor (VC) Prof Saiful Islam also took oath, among them.

Buet students, who were protesting the brutal murder of their peer, Abrar Fahad, formally ended their demonstration on Wednesday.

Rafia Rizwana, a student of the 17th batch of Buet, conducted the oath-taking ceremony at the university auditorium around 1:30pm where around 350 students of various departments took part.

All acting faculty deans and hall provosts attended the programme.

Abrar Fahad, a second-year electrical and electronic engineering student of the university, was beaten to death, by Chhatra League (BCL) men at its Sher-e-Bangla Hall on October 7.

The incident triggered protests at the top engineering university and brought its academic activities to a grinding halt.

Later, the VC accepted the demands of the protesting students and banned organisational politics, among others, on the campus.
