One confesses involvement in Abrar killing

DHAKA Ifti Mosharraf Sokal, one of the accused in

the case lodged over beating Bangladesh University of Engineering and

Technology (BUET) student Abrar Fahad to death at the wee hours of October 7,

today confessed his involvement in the gruesome murder.

Sokal, who was taken on a five-day remand along with nine others on

October 8, has given confessional statement this evening.

Investigation officer and detective branch inspector Md Wahiduzzaman

produced Sokal before the court and pleaded to record his statement under

Section 164.

Allowing the plea, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan

Chowdhury recorded Sokal's confessional statement and sent him to jail

afterwards.

The same court on October 8 placed Mehedi Hasan Rasel, Muhtasim Fuad, Anik

Sarker, Ifti Mosharraf Sokal, Sefayetul Islam Jiyon, Ishtiaq Munna, Khandaker

Tabakkharul Islam Tanvir, Mozahidur Rahman, Muntamir Al Jemmy and Mehedi

Hasan Robin, on a five-day remand.

BUET students and the varsity authorities found Abrar, 22, in critical

condition in the first-floor stairs of Sher-e-Bangla Hall and rushed him to

nearby Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), where doctors declared him dead

at around 6.30am.

Abrar's father filed the case with Chawkbazar Police Station against 19

people.
