MNA National Desk: The lawyers of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Sunday filed separate petitions with the High Court (HC) seeking her bail in three cases.
Among the three cases, two were filed in Cumilla on charge of plotting to carry out subversive acts and another in Narail on charge of defamation, said lawyer Khandaker Mahbub Hossain.
Earlier in the day, a HC bench of justice AKM Asaduzzaman and justice JBM Hassan granted permission to Khaleda for filing the bail petitions after her lawyers sought for it.
Later, the HC bench fixed June 7 to hear the bail pleas of the two Cumilla cases, Khaleda’s lawyer said.
The BNP chairperson is now facing a total of 36 cases.
