The Supreme Court has asked the High Court to dispose of an appeal filed by BNP chief Khaleda Zia in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case by October 31.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain extended the time for the High Court on Tuesday.

Khaleda’s lawyer Barrister AKM Ehsanur Rahman confirmed the matter, reports the UNB.

Earlier on May 16, the Supreme Court ordered the High Court to dispose of Khaleda's appeal challenging the lower court's verdict in the case by July 31.

 Later, the former prime minister’s lawyer filed a review petition on June 25 saying that the hearing on the petition would not be finished by this time.

 On July 12, the Supreme Court kept the petition standing over till July 31.

Later, Khaleda’s lawyer again placed it before the court on July 29.

 The Supreme Court on Monday fixed Tuesday (today) to pass an order on the petitions.

 On February 8, the Dhaka Special Court 5 convicted the former prime minister and sentenced her to five years' imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

 She was then sent to the old central jail at Nazimuddin Road in Dhaka.
