Prime minister Sheikh Hasina maximum punishment will be meted out to those involved in the brutal killing of BUET student Abrar Fahad. It will be not considered who belong to BCL.

The Premier said this while addressing a press conference around 3:30pm at Ganabhaban on Wednesday.

“I won’t consider who belong to BCL nor not. Criminals are criminals and they would be brought to justice and get punishment. I don’t wait for anyone to raise demands for justice as before the demands were raised, I gave directives, the criminals are being arrested and it has become easier for police to work after getting the CCTV footage,” she said.

The Prime Minister went on saying, “Why there is such brutality as a brilliant boy from a simple family is being killed? We’re taking steps against these criminals and we’ll ensure all sorts of punishment to them and there is no doubt about this.”

Noting that no one knows better than her about the losing of near and dear ones as it took long 38 years to get justice in the Bangabandhu murder case.

She also raised question why police personnel were barred at the BUET for long three hours since they went there for collecting evidences and CCTV footages after the death of Abrar.
