The High Court (HC) fixed Thursday for hearing the appeal petition filed by lawyers of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia challenging her imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust case.
 
An HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Shahidul Karim will hear the petition on the day.
 
Earlier in the afternoon, Khaleda’s lawyers filed the appeal petition with the concerned division of the High Court and sought bail for her on Tuesday noon.
 
Her lawyers filed the appeal a day after the court released the certified copy of the graft verdict.
 
On February 8, a special court in Dhaka sentenced five years imprisonment to BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and ten years imprisonment to five others in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. She was sent to Dhaka central jail following the verdict.
