A Dhaka court today (May 15) fixed June 15 for the hearing of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia in 11 cases lodged against her.
Today was fixed for her appearance before the court, but Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Md. Asaduzzaman reset the date after Khaleda's lawyer submitted an application.
Of the 11 cases, eight were filed with Darus Salam Police Station and two others were filed with Jatrabari Police Station for her role in BNP's vandalism during its hartal in 2015.
These ten cases were filed by police, while a sedition case was filed against the BNP chief by a person.
Apart from Khaleda Zia, the other accused in the vandalism cases include Amanullah Aman, Habib-Un-Nabi Khan Sohel and Sultan Salauddin Tuku.
The court was scheduled to hold hearing on charge framing in 10 of those cases and to accept a charge-sheet in one case filed with Jatrabari Police Station.
