British High Commissioner in Dhaka Robert Gibson visited BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia at her Gulshan residence on Sunday evening.

The British envoy entered Khaleda's residence around 5:30pm and went out at 6:30pm.

“The British High Commissioner went to Khaleda Zia's residence to meet her,” Shairul Kabir Khan, an official of the BNP chairperson's press wing told the Dhaka Tribune.

However, he did not say anything about the meeting agenda.

Earlier, BNP Vice-Chairman Shamsher Mobin Chowdhury and advisers to the party chairperson Riaz Rahman and Sabihuddin Ahmed entered Khaleda's residence around 5pm.

The leader of the opposition, Khaleda Zia, has remained "confined" inside her Gulshan residence since Saturday, a day before her party's "March for Democracy" programme.

Obstructed by the police from coming out of her residence to join the programme on Sunday, Khaleda extended the march till Monday. But, she did not come outside Monday to join the march.

The authorities said she is being obstructed from stepping outside for security reasons.
