Abrar Fahad killing: Bangladesh student was beaten for four hours

Abrar Fahad killing: Bangladesh student was beaten for four hours
BBC:

A Bangladeshi undergraduate student killed in his dormitory on Sunday days after criticising the government online was beaten for several hours before he died, witnesses told the BBC.

Fellow students say Abrar Fahad was taken from his room around 20:00 (14:00 GMT) and beaten at least four hours.

The doctor who performed the autopsy on Fahad, who was 21, confirmed to the BBC his body was heavily bruised.

Fahad studied at Dhaka's Bangladesh University of Engineering (Buet).

Several members of the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) - the youth wing of the governing Awami League party - were detained in connection with the death.

The BCL has been widely accused of using torture and extortion against students.

CCTV footage from Fahad's dormitory showed several men carrying the victim's body. Police detained nine men from the dorm, including at least five BCL activists.

By Tuesday the number of arrests had risen to 13, police said, all from Buet, while six more suspects are being sought.

Dhaka deputy police commissioner Munstasirul Islam confirmed the student had been beaten to death.

Dr Sohel Mahmud, head of the forensic department at Dhaka Medical College Hospital, who examined Fahad's body, told the BBC: "There was a lot of blunt force trauma in his body. We think he died of attack with blunt objects."
