BNP sought necessary security from police authorities for its Chairperson Khaleda Zia as she returns home from London on Saturday afternoon after several months of medical treatment there.
The party, meanwhile, sent the copies of a letter to the Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner, the Deputy Police Commissioner of Uttara and officer-in-charge of Airport Police Station seeking adequate measures for Khaleda’s security as she returns home around 5:30pm, said a press release, reports UNB.
The release said the party sought the police security as it is worried about her safety.
Earlier on Friday, BNP spokesman Asaduzzaman Ripon demanded the government beef up security for Khaleda Zia on her return home as the “country's law and order situation has deteriorated”.
Khaleda left Heathrow airport for Bangladesh in an Emirates Airlines flight at 10:30pm (local time) on Friday. She stayed in London for over two months.
On September 16, Khaleda Zia went to London on a personal tour for her eye treatment and celebrating Eid-ul-Azha there with her family members.
