The Awami League lawmaker has provided some crucial information about the murders during interrogation, police say.

A Tangail court has sent Awami League MP 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.

The district's Sadar Cognisance Court judge Abdullah Al Masum passed the order on Monday.

Rana, who was remanded in the case on Thursday, was sent to Kashimpur Central Jail in Gazipur later in the afternoon.

Case investigation officer Ashoke Kumar Singh, also OC district Detective Branch of police, told the Dhaka Tribune that Rana has provided some crucial information about the murders during interrogation.

Police would take next step after scrutinizing the information, he said.

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

On the following day, Shamim's mother filed a general diary at Tangail Sadar police station.

Mamun’s father filed the murder case on July 9, 2013. 

Later, police arrested several suspects and three of them – Khandaker Jahid, Shahadat Hossain and Hiron Mia – had revealed that both Jubo League leaders were murdered following Rana’s order.

After surrendering in court on September 18, 2016, Rana has been in jail in another case filed over the January 2013 murder of freedom fighter and Awami League leader Faruk Ahmed.
