BUET students hold a candle light vigil at the campus Shaheed Minar for Abrar Fahad, who was killed inside a dormitory of the university on Oct 7. File Photo/Mahmud Hossain OpuA court in Dhaka has ordered the authorities to seize the properties of four fugitives listed in the charge sheet of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) student Abrar Fahad murder case.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Md Kaisarul Islam gave the order on Tuesday (Dec 3) in line with the police reports over an arrest warrant issued by the court on Nov 18.
The court fixed Jan 5 to file a report on the execution of the attachment order.

The four fugitives are Mustafa Rafid, Morsheduzzaman Jishan, Ehtashamul Rabbi Tanim, and Morshed Amartya Islam.
On Nov 13, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) charged 25 BUET students in Abrar murder case.
Among the accused, 11 were directly involved in beating Abrar to death. The other 14 were indirectly involved in the incident, either by aiding, abetting or planning Abrar’s torture, and one of them was present at the scene.
The 21 other accused are behind bars. Eight of them have already confessed in court to their involvement in the murder — that shocked the nation and sparked countrywide protests.
Abrar, 22, was found dead on a staircase of BUET’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall in the early hours of Oct 7, after he was taken to the dormitory’s Room No 2011 around 8pm on Oct 6 and beaten mercilessly by Chhatra League men late into the night.
Abrar’s father Barkat Ullah filed the murder case at Chawkbazar Police Station against 19 people, mostly leaders, and activists of BUET Chhatra League unit.
Amid students’ protest, the university on Oct 11 banned all political activities on campus and suspended the 19 students accused in the case.
