A Dhaka court on Sunday has fixed May 6 to hold hearing on charge framing in Niko graft case against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and others.

Judge in-charge Nazrul Islam of Dhaka 9th special judge court issued the order this morning in response to a petition filed with the court seeking an adjournment of the hearing.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case against five, including Begum Khaleda Zia, with Tejgaon police station on December 9 in 2007, for abusing power in signing a deal with Canadian company Niko for exploring and extracting gas.
