A Tangail court on Monday sent Awami League lawmaker from Tangail-3 constituency Amanur Rahman Khan Rana to jail on completion of a two-day remand period in a case filed over the killing of two Jubo League leaders.
Senior judicial magistrate of the district’s Sadar cognisance court Abdullah Al Masum passed the order.
Rana was placed on a two-day remand in the case on Thursday.
Investigation officer of the case Ashoke Kumar Singh, also officer-in-charge of district Detective Branch of police, said that Rana had provided some crucial information related to the murders during the remand. They would take the next step after
scrutinising the information.
Baghil union Jubo League leaders Mohammad Shamim and Mohammad Mamun went missing on July 16, 2012 in the district town.
On the following day, Shamim’s mother filed a general diary with Tangail Sadar police station.
Later, the police arrested several suspects over the incident when two of the arrestees — Shahadat Hossain, 16 and Hiron Mia, 27 — revealed that both of the Jubo League leaders had been murdered under the direction of lawmaker Rana.
Rana had been in jail in another case filed over the killing of freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed on January 18, 2013.
