A Dhaka court on Monday placed two men to two-day remand in a case filed in connection with threatening to kill meat trader Khalilur Rahman who drew people's attention for selling beef at an affordable price at his shop at Shahjahanpur shop.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Zaki Al Farabi passed the order after a hearing.

The accused men are Nurul Haque, 67, and Mohammad Emon, 22.

Md Omar Faruk, sub-inspector of Shahjahanpur police station, produced the duo before the court with a 7-day remand prayer to interrogate them.

Sohag Fakir, the lawyer for the accused, applied for bail seeking cancellation of the remand.

However, the court denied the bail petition.

The lawyer confirmed the matter. 

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested them from Ashulia, Savar on Saturday night.

On January 20, Khalil filed a GD with Shahjahanpur police station, alleging that a caller threatened to kill him and his son over the phone on January 18 if he did not pay Tk25 lakh.

Khandaker Al Moin said Khalil started selling beef at "Khalil Ghost Bitan" on November 19 at Tk595 per kg.

Later, some other meat traders had to bring down the price to Tk600.
