A Dhaka court has asked BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to appear before it on February 1 in 10 criminal cases filed against her.
Judge Kamrul Hossain Mollah of Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s Court passed the order on Monday.
The court set the date after Khaleda’s lawyer Md Sanaullah Miah submitted 10 separate petitions seeking adjournment of the hearing in the cases.
In the petitions, lawyer Sanaullah said that his client could not appear before the court today due to her illness.
