A large number of protesters from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) have continued their demonstrations on Tuesday for an eight-point demand including arrest of all accused in Abrar Fahad murder case and their immediate punishment.

They have also called for a boycott of all classes and exams.

The protesters have threatened to go on tougher movement if their eight demands are not met.

The protesters under the banner of General Students of BUET were chanting slogans demanding justice for the killing of their fellow and protesting it.

Meanwhile, the Teachers' Association of BUET expressed solidarity with the students' movement and said that there is no need of student politics on the campus.

Students’ Welfare Advisor of BUET Prof Dr Md Mizanur Raman said there is no need of student politics on the campus of BUET.

“There is a debate about student politics in Bangladesh  as every time something terrible happens because of it, so I think the government should ban  student politics at all educational institutions including BUET”, he said.
