Court asks Khaleda to appear on April 10
Staff Reporter:A Dhaka court on Tuesday asked BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia to appear before it on April 10 in connection with 11 cases filed, including the sedition one filed for her comments about the number of martyrs during the 1971 Liberation War.
Judge Kamrul Hossain Mollah of the Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court passed the order after hearing a time petition filed by Khaleda’s lawyer Sanaullah Mia, reports UNB.
Khaleda Zia avoided the trial proceedings of the 11 cases on Tuesday due to her health problem, said her counsel.
Earlier, on March 14, the same court fixed today for the hearing.
Of the 11 cases, eight were filed with Darus Salam and two others with Jatrabari police stations in connection with arson attacks on vehicles in 2015 while the other was filed with a Dhaka court on sedition charge for her comments on the number of Liberation War martyrs.
