BNP worried about Khaleda's security

Update : 20 Nov 2015, 01:49 PM

The BNP has expressed concerns about the security of its party chief and has urged the government to take proper steps to ensure her safety.

“BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia will return to Bangladesh from London tomorrow [Saturday] by an Emirates Airlines flight. Our party is concerned about the BNP chairperson's security as the country's law and order situation has deteriorated,” read a press release Friday, signed by the party's acting spokesperson Asaduzzaman Ripon.

He urged the government to take proper steps to ensure Khaleda Zia's safety as the security system provided to her was “insufficient.”

Meanwhile, Ripon also issued a separate press release urging leaders and activists of all associate and front organisations of the BNP to welcome Khaleda at the airport.

The announcement of Khaleda's return came on Thursday, just a day after the country’s apex court cleared way for the execution of BNP Standing Committee Member Salauddin Quader Chowdhury for his war crimes in 1971.

Khaleda, the three-time former prime minister went to London on September 15 for medical treatment. Several rescheduling of her return date in recent weeks led to speculations regarding when she would come back.
