A Dhaka court on Sunday asked counsels of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia to explain why the bail of their high-profile client in Zia Charitable Trust graft case would not be quashed.
 
The court also asked the defence to submit High Court’s order by October 7 on their plea to stay the proceedings of the graft case, or else the court would pass order on ACC plea to set the date of verdict in Zia Charitable Trust graft case.
 
Judge Dr Md Akhteruzzaman of the Special Judge Court-5, set up inside former Dhaka Central Jail in capital’s Nazimuddin Road, passed the order today. The court also sent another accused Monirul Islam Khan to jail after cancelling his bail.
 
The ACC filed the case with capital’s Tejgaon Police Station on August 8, 2010, for embezzling Taka 3.15 crore. Police on January 16, 2012, filed charge sheet against the BNP chief and three others.
 
The three other accused in the case are Khaleda Zia’s former political secretary Haris Chowdhury, his former personal secretary Ziaul Islam Munna and Monirul Islam Khan, former personal secretary of former Dhaka city mayor Sadek Hossain Khoka.
 
Court framed charges against Khaleda and others in the case on March 19, 2014.-BSS
