BNP will seek bail for Khaleda from the High Court next week

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said the government urgently needs to free their party Chairperson Khaleda Zia on humanitarian ground instead of doing politics over the issue.

He came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after a meeting of BNP Standing Committee members with senior lawyers at BNP chairperson's Gulshan office in Dhaka on Friday, reports UNB.

"The family members of our leader [Khaleda Zia] have submitted a written application seeking arrangement to send her abroad for treatment as her condition seriously deteriorated," Fakhrul said.

He said: "I think it is crucial for the government to free her on humanitarian ground instead of doing politics over the issue."

The BNP leader said their party has been talking about the release of their chairperson alongside carrying out a legal battle for the last two years.

"People are demanding her release and her family also doing the same," he added.

Fakhrul said Khaleda's family members gave a letter to the vice chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) for ensuring advanced treatment for her.

Earlier, the BNP Standing Committee members sat in a meeting with Khaleda's lawyers around 4pm where they discussed various ways to free Khaleda.

Senior lawyer Khandker Mahbub Hossain said they would again seek bail for Khaleda from the High Court next week.

He hoped that the court would grant bail to the BNP chief this time demonstrating that there is rule of law in the country.
