Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Friday said BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is not in jail in politically motivated cases but in corruption cases, UNB reports.
 
“She (Khaleda) is in jail over corruption cases and the issue of her release completely depends on the court,” he said while talking to reporters after inaugurating the Insurance Fair at MA Aziz Stadium in the port city. 

The minister said the BNP chief can be released from jail only through legal process.

Although all political parties of the country tried to throw Bangladesh Chhatra League out of the Ducsu elections, their attempts went in vain, he said. 

Md Shafiqur Rahman Patwary, Chairman of Insurance Development and Regulatory Authority (IDRA), presided over the ceremony while its secretary Md Asadul Islam, Life Insurance Corporation Chairman Selina Afroz and Chattogram Divisional Commissioner Abdul Mannan were, among others, present at the occasion.
