The Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) authorities have set 'permanent expulsion as capital punishment for ragging and student politics on the campus.

They announced this in a notice on Tuesday.

The notice was signed by Prof Mizanur Rahman, director of the Directorate of Students' Welfare of the BUET.

Abrar Fahad, a second-year student of electrical and electronic engineering department, was tortured to death allegedly by some Chhatra League men at Sher-e-Bangla Hall on October 07.

Academic activities, including classes, have been halted for two months since students protesting the murder took to the streets demanding justice for the murder.

The protesting students placed three points of demand before the authorities to bring them back to classes.

With the latest, all the three demands have been met and the protesting students are now expected to return to classes.

Two other points of demand the authorities earlier met are banning of politics and suspension of 19 students, mostly leaders of the Chhatra League's BUET unit, accused in Abrar Fahad murder case.
