HC order on Khaleda's plea deferred till Nov 18
The High Court today deferred till Sunday the delivery of its order on a writ petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia challenging the government decision to take her back to jail from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).
The HC bench of Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil, which was scheduled to pass an order today, deferred the date after Khaleda Zia’s lawyer placed a supplementary petition before it, Khaleda's lawyer Barrister Kayser Kamal told The Daily Star.
The Lawyer however did not disclose the content of the supplementary petition.
Khaleda was admitted to BSMMU on October 6 as per an earlier HC directive and taken back to jail on November 8.
The BNP chief submitted the petition on November 11 seeking an HC order on the government to send her to a specialised hospital.
On November 13, the HC bench concluded hearing on the writ petition and fixed Thursday(today) for passing order on the matter.
