Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)-Embattled Bangladeshi ex-Prime Minister and main opposition leader Khaleda Zia faced another setback on March 30 when a court here issued an arrest warrant against her over a deadly arson attack on a passenger bus during an anti-government protest campaign last year.
The Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s Court of Dhaka passed the order against the 70-year-old chairperson of the main opposition outside Parliament Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and 27 others from her party after accepting police’s charge sheet in the case, reports the India Tribune.
Judge Kamrul Hossain Mollah, after accepting the charges against 38 people including the 28, passed the order in connection with the arson attack in Jatrabari area here in January last year when Zia’s party spearheaded a violent nationwide campaign to topple Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s ruling Awami League government.
