To conform to RFC 3066, please use bn-BD, NOT ben-BD.

The value to add such locale specific data may be thought of as bn-BD (a two letter language code followed by optional subcodes meant for say, country)   or  as  ben-BD ( a three letter language code followed by optional subcodes meant for say, country). RFC 3066 may address this.
