The move came after Abrar Fahad, a second-year student at the electrical and electronic engineering department of the university, was beaten to death by a group of Chhatra League men at the hall on early Monday.
Earlier in the day, BUET authorities sealed off three rooms at Sher-e-Bangla hall and Ahsan Ullah hall for illegal occupancy. Two of the rooms belonged to the university unit BCL president and general secretary.
