El was very close to finding out Kiara’s identity and was about to eventually eliminate both Misa and Light. So, as a solution to this, Light tells Rem to kill L. He was not able to do so because El had not revealed his real name, making it impossible for Light to write his name in the notebook. So, he manipulates Misa to ask Rem to do the same. Why does he go for Rem when he can ask Ryuk? Simply because Ryuk doesn’t care about anything and won’t listen to Light. Misa, who thought that Light really loved him, told Rem to kill L, and as Rem loved Misa, he did what Misa said. Through his Shinigami eyes, Rem finds out L’s real name and writes it down on the Death Note.

Misa reassures Rem by saying that this man L was a threat to her life as he was investigating to find Kira and was very close to finding her. On discovering this, he will kill both Misa and Light. So, on this, Rem got convinced and wrote L’s name in the notebook, hence, killing him of a heart attack.
