HC stays 3 violence cases against Khaleda
The High Court on Tuesday stayed the proceedings of three violence cases filed against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in 2015.
The HC bench of Justice Mitfah Uddin Chowdhury and Justice ANM Bashirullah passed the order after Khaleda’s lawyer Mahbub Uddin Khokon filed three petitions seeking stay on the case proceedings.
Meanwhile, Deputy Attorney General Sheikh AKM Moniruzzaman Kabir said they are taking preparation to file an appeal against the order.
Among the cases, two were filed with Jatrabari police station and another with Darussalam police stations on charge of instigating violence during the non-stop blockade programme enforced by the BNP-led alliance in 2015.
