20 Bangladeshi Students Given Death Penalty

On Wednesday, Bangladesh sentenced 20 university students to death for the brutal 2019 murder of a young boy who publicly criticised the government on social media. 21 year old Abrar Fahad’s battered body was discovered in his university dormitory hours after he wrote a Facebook post criticising Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for signing a water-sharing agreement with India.


As per reports, the boy was beaten for six hours with a cricket bat and other blunt objects by 25 fellow students from the ruling Awami League’s student wing, the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL).

“I am happy with the verdict. I hope the punishments will be served soon”,

said Fahad’s father Barkat Ullah after the verdict.
