Update : 21 Jun 2015, 10:01 AM

Police have sought a seven-day remand to interrogate Bakhtiar Alam Rony, the son of an MP, in connection with the double murder case.

The investigation officer of the case filed the remand petition with Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court on Sunday afternoon.

The court will hold the remand hearing on June 24.

Earlier on April 13, Yakub Sikder, driver of a CNG-run auto-rickshaw of the daily Janakantha, and Abdul Halim, a rickshaw-puller, received bullet injuries when Rony fired at people indiscriminately in Dilu Road on that night.

Halim died on April 15 while Yakub succumbed to his injuries on April 23 while undergoing treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

Halim’s mother Monowara Begum filed the case with Ramna police station on April 15. It was then shifted to the Detective Branch of police on May 24.

Detectives arrested Rony from his Elephant Road residence on May 31. On June 1, a Dhaka court granted the DB police four days to interrogate Rony. After he pretended to be sick, interrogation finally began on June 9.
