Prime Minister and also Awami League president Sheikh Hasina has expressed deep resentment over the murder of Abrar Fahad, a student of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).

The Prime Minister said she is shocked, sad and sorry for the brutal killing.

In an informal meeting with Awami League leaders at Ganabhaban on Tuesday night she said those who are involved in the murder of Abrar Fahad would be brought under the trial within the shortest possible time for ensuring strict punishment.

Sheikh Hasina said she is not only the Prime Minister, but also she is a mother; she mourns the pain of losing a child.

The premier said that soon after receiving the news of the brutal murder of Abrar, she had ordered the law enforcers to take immediate action to arrest the murderers and collect information about the killing.

Condemning the killing, the Prime Minister also said, “There could be disagreements on opinions. So, will people be beaten and killed in this way? How can classmates murder a classmate? Are they human? What kind of barbarity is this? Such an event cannot be accepted at all. It will be judged within the fastest time.”

Sheikh Hasina said, "I do not do politics to attack on those who express different opinions. I never tolerate injustice. I have taken urgent action, following the killing of Abrar Fahad. I have directed to find out the killers after analysing the CCTV footage."

The Prime Minister wanted to know why the movement will still be needed. And why is it being tried to create anarchy in the name of the movement?

The Prime Minister has strongly cautioned that if any evil force wants to do evil politics centring the killing of Abrar would not be tolerated.

The informal meeting was attended by Chhatra League acting president Al-Nahian Khan Joy and acting general secretary Lekhak Bhattacharjee, among others.

The Prime Minister told them to keep patient in the present situation.

 “In no way you can step to anyone’s trap. You should speed up communication with the leaders of the country. We have to protest, condemn Abrar's murder. There can be no compromise,” she added.

Senior Awami League leaders were also present in the meeting.
