A Dhaka court on Tuesday ordered attaching the property of the four fugitives in BUET student Abrar Fahad murder case.

The court also asked the law enforcers to execute the order and submit a report in this regard by January 5.

The four fugitives are Mustafa Rafid, former deputy office secretary of BCL BUET unit and members Morsheduzzaman Jishan, Ehtashamul Rabbi Tanim and Morshed Amartya Islam.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Md  Kaisarul Islam passed the warrant of proclamation and attachment of property order after police submitted a report on the execution of the arrest warrant issued on November 18.

On October 7, Abrar, a second-year student of electrical and electronics engineering department of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, was beaten to death by a group of BCL men at the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall for his critical view on facebook.

On November 13, Inspector Mohammad Wahiduzaman of Detective Branch, also the investigation officer of the case, submitted the charge sheet before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court in Dhaka.

On November 13, Detective Branch pressed charges against 25 activists of BUET Chhhatra League in the murder case.

The charge sheet mentioned that 21 of the 25 accused were arrested while the rest four were still in hiding.

His killing, which followed his Facebook posting on critical views over India-Bangladesh deals, triggered protests nationally and internationally.
