BUET movement comes to an end with mass oath taking

MNA Career & Education Desk: Students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) finally called off their movement through taking oath on Wednesday, 10 days after the protest against the murder of their fellow Abrar Fahad.

The student observed a mass oath-taking programme at the BUET auditorium at about 1:15am against all kinds of crime, and communal and evil forces.

BUET Vice Chancellor Prof Saiful Islam, deans of different faculties and hall provosts also took oath.

But, the teachers did not join them although they were present in the programme.

Before the beginning of the programme, one-minute silence was observed in memory of Abrar Fahad. BUET’s 17th batch student Rafia Rizwana administered the oath.

The students vowed to unitedly thwart the rise of all kinds of crime, and communal and evil forces on their campus and to remain vocal against all injustice and discriminations.

They also promised to discharge their duties with utmost sincerity and honesty for the well-being and and safety of all inmates of the university.

After attending the programme, the VC told reporters that decision on permanent expulsion of the accused will be taken after receiving the investigation report.

Abrar Fahad, 21, a second year student of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), was found dead at his dormitory Sher-e-Bangla Hall early Monday.

The dormitory students alleged that Fahad was beaten to death by the university unit Chhatra League men at one stage of questioning him on suspicion of Shibir following his facebook post over recent several deals with India.

Fahad’s father in the evening on that day lodged a case with Chawkbazar Police Station against 19 BUET students.
