BNP leaders to meet Khaleda in jail on Wednesday
A 10-member delegation of BNP, including its Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, will meet the party’s Chairperson Khaleda Zia in jail on Wednesday. They will go to the old central jail at Nazimuddin Road in Dhaka at 3pm to meet Khaleda, the BNP chief’s media wing member Shamsuddin Didar told reporters on Tuesday night. He said the authorities concerned gave permission to nine members of the party’s Standing Committee and the BNP chief's Special Assistant ABM Abdus Sattar to meet her in jail. The eight other leaders are Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Moudud Ahmed, Jamiruddin Sircar, Mahbubur Rahman, Abdul Moyeen Khan, Mirza Abbas, Nazrul Islam Khan and Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury. On February 8, a special court had sentenced Khaleda Zia to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case. The 73-year-old three-time prime minister was then taken to the old central jail.
