Khaleda Zia gets bail

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia secured a six-month interim bail in a case filed over the death of people in an arson attack in Cumilla.

Eight people were killed and 20 others were injured when a petrol bomb was hurled at a bus at Jogmohanpur in Chouddagram during the BNP-led alliance's movement on February 3, 2015.

Justice AKM Asaduzzamanand Justice SM Mozibur Rahman's bench granted Khaleda bail after hearing a petition.

AJ Mohammad Ali stood for Khaleda while Attorney General Mahbubey Alam represented the state.

Khaleda's lawyer moved the HC on February 27 after a subordinate court in Cumilla rejected her bail plea on February 4.
