Demeaning Liberation War martyrs: Khaleda seeks HC bail

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia today filed a petition with the High Court seeking bail in a case filed over demeaning Liberation War martyrs.

The HC bench of Justice Muhammad Abdul Hafiz and Justice Kashefa Hussain may hold hearing on the petition, Barrister AKM Ehsanur Rahman, a lawyer for Khaleda, told The Daily Star.

In January 2016, AB Siddique, president of Bangladesh Jananetri Parishad, a pro-Awami League organisation, filed the case against the BNP chairperson over her alleged insulting remarks on the Liberation War martyrs.

On December 21 in 2015, Khaleda said in a public address, “There are controversies over how many were martyred in the Liberation War.”

On July 15 this year, a Dhaka court denied Khaleda bail in the case.

Earlier on July 11, the same court issued arrest warrants against Khaleda Zia in the same case.
