More than a hundred BNP activists were arrested yesterday after chase and counter-chases took place between them and law enforcers at several spots that came under the tour- route of BNP chief Khaleda Zia.The BNP chairperson left her Gulshan residence for Sylhet by road around 9:15am to offer fateha at the shrines of Hazrat Shahjalal (R) and Hazrat Shah Paran (RA) as a special court here is set to pronounce its verdict on Thursday in a graft case against her. Most of the incidents of chase, counter-chases took place when BNP activists converged along roads Khaleda took on her way to Sylhet.
