Dhaka, Sep 30 (Just News): A Dhaka Court today asked the lawyer of BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia to explain by October 7 whether it will keep the bail order while she is in jail in the Zia Charitable Trust case.
Judge Md Akhteruzzaman of the Special Judge Court-5 of Dhaka passed the order after Khaleda's lawyer submitted a petition seeking extension of her bail in the case.
The court also fixed the same date for hearing arguments.
The BNP chief is now in the jail after she was sentenced to a five-year-imprisonment in Zia Orphanage Trust case since February 8.
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the Zia Charitable Trust graft case against Khaleda and three others with Tejgaon Police Station in August, 2011.
