Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) students, who are continuing demonstration over their fellow Abrar Fahad murder, have said the vice-chancellor (VC) of the university has decided to meet them on Friday.

The negotiation came after having a discussion inside the campus around 6:30pm on Thursday, confirmed Soumen Sikder, one of the protesters and a student of the university’s electrical and electronic engineering department.

Kamrul Hasan, personal secretary to the VC Prof Dr Saiful Islam, and the protesting students sat for a meeting and they came to an agreement that protesters would hold a discussion with the VC at Buet auditorium at 5pm on Friday, Soumen said.

He furthered: "Only national mass media will be allowed to cover the meeting for security reasons, as some freelance youtuber and unknown online portals often spread misleading information."

“Prior to the Friday meeting, the protesters announced to hold a press conference around 10am and unveil details regarding the arrangement,” Soumen said.

Meanwhile, Kamrul Hasan told "I did not talk to the students but was present at the meeting. There were other teachers who held discussions with the protesting students. We will inform you later about the Friday's meeting."

Earlier on Thursday, protesting students threatened to lock down all the buildings of Buet if the vice chancellor fails to meet them by Friday.

Protests ensued soon after Abrar, a second year student of electrical and electronic engineering department of the university, was beaten to death allegedly by some leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League’s Buet unit inside the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall on the early hours of Monday.
