High Court on Wednesday directed Cumilla district and sessions judge’s court to dispose the bail application of Bangladesh Nationalist Party chairperson Khaleda Zia in Cumilla arson attack case on February 4.
A bench of Justice Md Rezaul Haque and Justice Zafar Ahmed directed the district judge to dispose her application without failure on February 4, the next date for hearing on her bail application by the lower court.
’The bench issued the directive after disposing her application seeking bail.
Khaleda filed the bail petition in the HC as Cumilla district court deferred hearing her bail petition for fourth time since November 2018,’ her lawyer Kayser Kamal told reporters.
Earlier on February 3, 2015, Khaleda Zia was accused in an arson case, filed under the special powers act, in Cumilla that killed seven passengers of a bus.
