Khaleda's appearance in 11 cases on Sep 20

Khaleda's appearance in 11 cases on Sep 20

A court in Dhaka on Wednesday set September 20 for the appearance of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia before it in 11 cases filed against her.

Today was fixed for the appearance of the BNP chief before the court but Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh reset the date as Khaleda Zia failed to appear because of her "poor health".

During BNP's strike in early 2015, police filed eight cases with Darus Salam police station and two cases with Jatrabari police station while a person filed a sedition case.

Later in 2016, police submitted a charge sheet against Khaleda and others accused.

Along with Begum Zia, the notable accused in these cases are BNP leaders Amanullah Aman, Habib-un-Nabi Khan Sohail and Sultan Salauddin Tuku.
