A Dhaka court on Monday extended bail for BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia until June 28 in Zia Charitable Trust graft case and withdrawn production warrant issued against her.
Judge Akhtaruzzaman of the Special Judge Court-5 set up in Dhaka’s Bakshibazar area passed the order after Khaleda’s lawyers submitted a petition seeking extension of her bail and withdrawal of production warrant against her.
Earlier, on May 10, the court extended bail of Khaleda Zia until June 4 in the corruption case.
On April 22, the same court extended her bail until May 10 in the graft case.
