DHAKA: Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal rejected the backlash of BNP that claims Khaleda Zia was shown arrested in others cases apart from Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
“Khaleda Zia has been jailed in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. The observation of BNP alleging she was shown arrested in other cases are totally false and propaganda. It has no base”, he said.
However, Inspector General (IG) of Prison Brig Gen Syed Iftekhar Uddin earlier said that a production warrant against Khaleda Zia in two cases over sabotage activities in Comilla’s Chauddagram reached to the old central jail in Nazimuddin Road Monday (February 12).
A Dhaka special court sentenced Khaleda Zia to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
