BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia has been sued for making a 'defamatory statement' on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

AB Siddique, president of Bangladesh Jananetri Parishad, filed the defamation case with the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Abullah Al Masud this morning.

In the complaint, Siddique alleged that Khaleda, while addressing a programme on December 31 last year, said that Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman wanted to be the prime minister of undivided Pakistan rather than leading the country to independence.

The BNP chief came up with the remarks at the 38th founding anniversary of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh in Dhaka.

After the hearing, the court asked officer-in-charge of Shahbagh Police Station to submit a report by February 21 after investigation into the matter.
