The Supreme Court on Sunday stayed a High Court order that cancelled a petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia seeking its order for re-investigation into a portion of Zia Orphanage Graft case against her.


A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed the order.


Khaleda recorded the petition with the High Court on March 1.


On July 3, 2008, the ACC lodged the case accusing Khaleda, her elder son Tarique Rahman and four others for embezzling over Tk 2.10 crore that was received as grants for orphans via a foreign bank.
