Hearing on petition deferred again
The hearing of a writ petition, filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia with the High Court seeking its directive on the government to send her to United Hospital in Dhaka for treatment, was deferred once again yesterday.
The petition will be included in the cause list of the HC bench of Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Ahmed Sohel on September 16, when the bench resumes its functions, Deputy Attorney General Mokhlesur Rahman told The Daily Star.
The writ petition filed by Khaleda on September 9 was included in yesterday's hearing list, but the HC bench did not hear it as Khaleda's lawyer Barrister Kayser Kamal sought time from the bench.
DAG Mokhlesur told the court that the government has taken an initiative to form a medical board for the treatment of Khaleda Zia.
The hearing had been deferred earlier on September 10 as well with the same HC bench, following another time prayer moved by Barrister Kayser Kamal.
