Students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) have declared that all academic activities, including classes and exams, will be kept stopped if their demands are not met. 


The protestors made the announcement on Wednesday morning at the Shaheed Minar of BUET in protest of the killing of their fellow student Abrar Fahad.

The movement started again on Wednesday morning. Students took to the Shaheed Minar on campus demanding permanent expulsion of the murderers from BUET and speedy trial and shutting down student politics on campus.

Earlier in the day, teachers and students staged a silent procession on campus to protest Abrar's killing.

At around 11am, the students presented a 10-point demand, including new two-point, at the Shaheed Minar rally.
