Court orders to give division to Khaleda Zia
A Dhaka court has directed the authorities of old Dhaka Central Jail to provide first class division to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia as per the jail code. Judge Akhtaruzzaman of Dhaka Special Judge’s Court 5 issued the order on Sunday, in response to a petition filed by Khaleda's lawyer Sanaullah Miah seeking division for the former prime minister. Sanaullah filed the petition with the court earlier in the day. On Saturday, five lawyers – Barrister Moudud Ahmed, Barrister Jamiruddin Sircar, Barrister Khandker Mahbub Hossain, Md Ali and Barrister Abdur Razzak – met the BNP chief inside the old jail.

On Thursday, the same court convicted Khaleda in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case and sentenced her to five years’ imprisonment. Five other accused in the case, including her son and acting chairman of BNP Tarique Rahman, were sentenced to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment and fined Tk2.10 crore each. Later, the administration building of the old jail on Nazimuddin Road was declared a sub-jail to accommodate the BNP chief.
