TV grabBNP has expelled a leader of its lawyer front for defending the killers of a Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) student, Abrar Fahad, who was beaten to death by leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chattra League.
Morsheda Khatun Shilpi, a member of Jatiyatabadi Ainjibi Forum's central convening committee, was stripped of all posts for violating the party disciplines, said a statement signed by BNP senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi late early on Thursday.
For now on, the Forum will maintain no relation with Shilpi, read the statement.
According to sources at BNP, Shilpi's defending the suspected killers of Abrar drew flack in the party leading to the expulsion.
