A Tangail court on Monday sent Awami League lawmaker from Tangail-3 constituency Amanur Rahman Khan Rana to jail after completion of his two-day remand 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.

Earlier on Thursday, Rana was placed on a two-day remand in the case. Investigation officer Ashoke Kumar Singh, also officer-in-charge of district Detective Branch of police, said Rana has provided some crucial information about the murders during the remand. They would take next step after scrutinising the information.

 According to the case statement, 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, 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 MP Rana.  Rana has been in jail in another case filed over the killing of freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed on January 18, 2013, reports UNB.
