Dhaka court adjourns Khaleda’s hearing
A Dhaka court yesterday adjourned till March 6 the hearing of the charges framed against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and six others in the Barapukuria coal mine graft case.
Judge AHM Ruhul Imran, of Dhaka's Special Judge's Court-2, passed the order after a petition was filed, on her behalf, seeking an adjournment as Khaleda has been sick and was exempted from appearing at the hearing earlier, her lawyer Masud Ahmed Talukder told The Daily Star.
Yesterday, five others accused, including BNP leader Altaf Hossain Chowdhury, now on bail, were present at the hearing. Another accused Md Sirajul Islam has been absconding since the case was filed.
