BNP assistant office secretary Taiful Islam Tipu told media that the list of 'fictitious cases' was submitted to the PMO at 11:00 am and PM's Personal Secretary Abdur Rahim received it.

It was a partial list and more lists will be submitted later, he added.

During a dialogue with Dr-Kamal Hossain-led Jatiya Oikyafront on November 1 Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina asked the BNP leaders to submit a list of its arrested leaders and activists.

In a letter attached with the list, BNP requested stopping of arrest and harassment of their leaders and activists in 'false' and 'fictitious' cases and withdrawal of these cases.
