A Tangail court on Thursday placed Awami League MP from Tangail-3 constituency Amanur Rahman Khan Rana on a 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 after hearing a petition filed by the investigation officer of the case.


Ashoke Kumar Singh, also officer-in-charge of district Detective Branch of police, sought a five-day remand to interrogate him on Wednesday when Rana was shown arrested in the case.


Meanwhile, the MP was shown arrested on Thursday in another case filed over the murder attempt on a Bangladesh Chhatra League leader.


The court, however, granted him bail in the case.


According to the case statement Baghil union Jubo League leaders Shamim and Mamun went missing on July 16, 2012 in the district town.


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 them -- Shahadat Hossain, 16 and Hiron Mia, 27 -- revealed that both of the Jubo League leaders had been murdered at the order of MP Rana.


A group of miscreants attacked BCL leader Abu Sayeed Rubel on December 20, 2016.


Rana has been in jail in a case filed over the killing of freedom fighter Faruk Ahmed on January 18, 2013.
