Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said we did not receive any application for BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia’s release on parole.

He said this after inaugurating a branch of Sydney International School in Gulshan in the capital on Sunday.

The Home Minister said I have not received any application yet. Moreover, it is a matter of court.

Khaleda Zia's lawyer, Advocate Zainul Abedin, said they would apply for bail again this week to seek the release of the BNP chief. Drawing attention to Section 401 (1) of the Criminal Procedure Code, he said that the government may suspend such imprisonment on special consideration.

Khaleda Zia has been in jail since February 8, 2018, after being convicted in a Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case. Later in the same year, she was convicted in another corruption case.
