Khaleda seeks HC bail in Narail defamation case

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia today filed a petition with the High Court seeking bail in a defamation case filed against her in Narail for making derogatory remarks on martyrs of the Liberation War and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The HC may hold hearing on the bail petition on Sunday, August 12, Barrister Kayser Kamal, a lawyer for Khaleda, told The Daily Star.  

Raihan Farooque Imam from Naragati in Narail filed the case with the Cognisance Court in the district on December 24, 2015, reacting on remarks made by the BNP chief at a discussion at the capital’s Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, on December 21 the same year.

During the discussion, Khaleda raised questions about the actual number of Liberation War martyrs saying, “There are controversies over how many were martyred in the Liberation War. There are also many books and documents on the controversies.”

On July 17 this year, a Narail court denied bail to the BNP chief in the defamation case.
