BNP on Wednesday expressed its solidarity with the demands of demonstrating students of Buet over the death of Abrar Fahad, reports UNB.

Speaking at a press conference at the party's Nayapaltan central office, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi also called upon Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to demonstrate that she is in favour of slain Buet student Abrar by cancelling the recently signed 'anti-state' bilateral documents with India.

He demanded that the government immediately arrest Amith Saha, a student of Sher-e-Bangla Hall's 2011-No room where Abrar was reportedly tortured to death.

"We express our solidarity with each and every demand of the students who have been on a movement," Rizvi said.

He said though Abrar was tortured and killed in Amith Saha's room, no action was taken against him. "He was neither made accused in the case, nor expelled by Chhatra League. The Buet administration and controversial police officials are active to save him."

The BNP leader said Abrar was beaten to death for reportedly posting a status on Facebook in the interests of the country's soil and water.

"The government deceived people by signing the anti-state deal. So, the government can't avoid the responsibility for the murder of Abrar."

Stating that the Prime Minister is going to address a press conference today (Wednesday), he said people want to know whether she will annul all the "anti-state" deals.
