Students and teachers of different educational institutions across the country have been continuing demonstration on their respective campuses demanding justice for Abrar Fahad.

Our RU Correspondent adds: The students of Rajshahi University (RU) demonstrated on the campus yesterday for the third consecutive day demanding punishment of BUET student Abrar killers.

Hundreds of students formed human chain in front of the university central library around 11pm yesterday.  Later, they paraded the campus, chanting slogans, demanding justice for all the campus killings. They also submitted three-point demand, including to ensure safety on the campus, removal of corrupted administration and to ensure justice for Abrar.

On the programme, they also demanded removal of RU vice-chancellor Prof M Abdus Sobhan and Pro-vice chancellor Prof Chawdhury Md Zakaira for alleged involvement in job recruitment irregularities.

As part of their series protest program, they also announced to hold signature campaign and showing red card to vice- chancellor and Pro-VC today (Thursday) on the campus.  On the other hand, Pro-BNP teacher forum ‘white panel’ gave statement condemning the killing incident of BEUT student. Moreover, its student body JCD brought a protest procession on the campus demanding justice for Abrar.

They brought out a protest procession from the central library premises that ended at the main entrances of the university. In the meantime, demonstrators took position on the Dhaka-Aricha Highway and blocked the road for one hour chanting different slogans protesting the killing.  

Following the highway blockade, vehicular movement was disrupted, resulting traffic jam that triggers sufferings to the pedestrians.

Convener of ‘Bangladesh Sadharan Chhatra Odhikar Sangrakkhan Parishad’, JU unit, Shakil Uzzaman said Abrar was killed in a planned way following a facebook post.
