Order to seize assets of 4 fugitives of Abrar murder

A Dhaka court on Tuesday ordered to confiscate the assets of four fugitives accused in BUET student Abrar Fahad murder case. Dhaka’s Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Muhammad Kaisarul Islam passed the order. Those four fugitive accused students were identified as Morsheduzzaman Jisan, Ehteshamul Rabbi Tanim, Morshed Islam and Mustaba Rafid. The court also directed the officers-in-charges (OCs) of the concerned police stations to submit reports regarding execution of the order by January 1.

Earlier on November 18, the same court had issued an arrest warrant against those four-fugitive accused. Apart from the order, the court had fixed December 3 to submit report if the fugitives were arrested. On November 13, police submitted a charge sheet accusing 25 students of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) of Abrar murder. Most of them were the leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League.

Abrar, 22, was found dead on a staircase of Sher-e-Bangla Hall in the early hours of October 7. The boy was tortured to death in a room of the hall.
