PM for quick disposal of Abrar murder case


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday said she has directed the Law Minister to look for a way for the quick disposal of the Abrar Fahad murder case.

“I have already asked the Law Minister to find out a way for the quick disposal of Abrar Fahad killing case,” she said.

The Prime Minister said this while the family members of Abrar Fahad met her at her official residence Ganobhaban.

PM's press secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.

Abrar's Father Barkat Ullah and mother Rokeya Khatun expressed their profound gratitude to the Prime Minister as she is dealing with the matter from the position of a mother.

They said they do not have any word to express their gratitude for playing the role from the position of a mother.

They also expressed their gratitude to the administration, police and the people of the country for their all-out support and cooperation.

After the incident, Hasina said, they did not see who belong to which party. "I don't want to see who belongs to which party. To me, killers are just killers, criminals are just criminals," she said.

The Prime Minister said she does not have the words to console them as what they have lost. "Please look at me, I’ve lost everything in just one night, I understand the pain of losing close ones."

Sheikh Hasina said the killers are not human being. "How they could kill a person with whom they were sitting and studying [every day]!" she said.

Abrar Fahad's brother Abrar Faiz, Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader, joint secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Kusthia Sadar upazila AL general secretary and upazila chairman Ataur Rahman were, among others, at the meeting.

Abrar, a second-year student of Buet’s electrical and electronic engineering department, was beaten to death by a group of BCL men at the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall on October 7.
