(News 1st); Bangladesh on Wednesday (08) sentenced 20 university students to death for the brutal 2019 murder of a youth who criticized the Government on social media.

The body of Abrar Fahad, 21, was found in his university dormitory hours after he wrote a Facebook post slamming Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for signing a water-sharing deal with India.

The deceased was beaten with a cricket bat and other blunt objects for six hours by 25 fellow students who were members of the ruling Awami League’s student wing, the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL).

Prosecutor stated that the remaining five perpetrators were sentenced to life imprisonment and all those handed death sentences were between 20 and 22 years old and attended the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology alongside the deceased.
