Abrar knew he was in trouble, but he did not realise these would be the final moments of his life
Just before his brutal murder on Sunday night, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology student Abrar Fahad was solving a math equation while eating chips in his dormitory room.
A group of Bangladesh Chhatra League leaders then showed up at his door. Fate was not kind to Abrar, his math equation and pack of chips remained unfinished forever.
He knew he was in trouble. He was ready for some berating words and a beating from his unwelcome visitors.
Abrar may have known he was being taken to a torture cell, but he did not realise these would be the final moments of his life.
"On Sunday, I came to my room at 8pm. Abrar was there and he greeted me. I saw him solving math equations and eating chips. A mathematics book and a pack of chips are still on Abrar's table, but he is gone forever," lamented Abrar's roommate Mizanur Rahman while talking to The Business Standard.
"That was the last time I saw Abrar alive. I went to the washroom a few minutes later, and I did not see him in the room after I returned. I heard that he had been called by some Bangladesh Chhatra League leaders. I forgot about the matter soon after," he added.
Mizan continued his recount of the horrific incident, "At 2am on Monday, two students whom I did not know came to my room and informed me that Abrar was lying down near the staircase of the second floor.
"I called other students and informed a doctor, who arrived at the scene and declared Abrar dead. He was more than just my roommate, I thought of him as my brother. He was very sincere and polite and I will always remember him," Mizan said.
Abrar liked Bengali and foreign literature, especially Rabindranath Tagore, Kazi Nazrul Islam and many others.
