A court in Dhaka today has granted remand to eight people, including Aminul Islam Hannan alias Japani Hannan for killing businessman Abdur Rashid at Ainushbagh Chadnagar area in the capital’s Dakshin Khan over a dispute.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Sayeed’s court passed the order on Thursday.
