Appearing before the students after 36 hours of the killing of Abrar Fahad, BUET Vice Chancellor Prof Saiful Islam has said that he had accepted ‘in principle’ all their demands.
“I agree with your (students’) demands. We’ve accepted in principle all of yours’ demands,” he said.
When the students wanted to know particularly which demands are accepted, the VC avoided giving any answer.
Replying to another question over his delayed appearance, Prof Saiful Islam said,”I’ve been keeping contact with the education minister and the deputy minister for the entire day, holding meetings to solve the problems.”
Later, they chanted slogans against the VC.
The VC alongwith deans and teachers of different departments tried to clam down them. Having failed, they later, left the place.
Abrar Fahad, 21, a second year student of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), was found dead at his dormitory Sher-e-Bangla Hall early Monday.
The killing sparked a strong protest as the general students demanded punishment to the culprits.
