Ashiqul Islam Bitu, who was expelled for life in connection with the murder of BUET student Abrar Fahad, has suspended his movement for a week in protest of his return to class.
The announcement was made in a press release issued by the general students on Saturday (May 29).
The BUET administration has decided to continue academic activities for next week, the statement said. It is hoped that in the meantime, the BUET administration will live up to its promise. Otherwise the program will be taken up again after next week based on the opinion of the general students. The students also said in a statement that they would not compromise on the killing of Abrar Fahad.
Meanwhile, the university authorities said in a notification on Thursday (May 26) that it has decided to file an appeal against the writ petition of the student who was expelled from BUET’s academic activities for life. Necessary documents have been collected in this regard. An appeal is being filed, which is expected to be completed within the next week.
On May 22, Ashiqul Islam Bittu took part in an online class of a course of Chemical Engineering Level-3 Term-1. This caused intense dissatisfaction among the general students. They gave an ultimatum to the university administration to cancel the course registration of Ashiqul Islam Bitu and ensure that no one permanently expelled for his involvement in the murder of Abrar Fahad could return to academic activities. They also held a human chain program on campus at noon last Thursday (May 26).
