Abrar first martyr for sovereignty: BNP

Describing Abrar Fahad as the first martyr in the struggle for protecting the country's sovereignty, water and soil, BNP Tuesday demanded that the Feni River be renamed the 'Abrar River'.

Party's Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi came up with the remarks while addressing a press conference at BNP's Nayapaltan central office in the city on Tuesday.

He also claimed that the names of the key accused were left out in the case filed in connection with Abrar murder. "The current regime's policy is to hand over the country's soil and water resources to others, but those who'll protest against it will be killed through torture. Abrar Fahad is the first martyr in the war on protecting independence, sovereignty, water and soil of our country," he said.

The BNP leader strongly condemned the murder of Abrar and demanded the government track down the real offenders and mete out exemplary punishment to them.

Abrar, 21, a resident of Sher-e-Bangla Hall of BUET, was pronounced dead around 3am on Monday by BUET medical officer Dr Md Mashuk Elahi after he was mercilessly

 beaten allegedly by some Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists of the university unit.Later, his father filed a case against 19 BCL men with Chawkbazar Police Station in the capital.
