The High Court on Thursday accepted BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s appeal against her conviction in Zia Orphanage Trust graft and set Sunday for hearing on a bail petition.

According to UNB, Barrister Nowshad Jamir and Barrister Kaiser Kamal, on behalf of the BNP chief, submitted the 880-page bail petition in the morning showing 31 grounds for granting her bail.

On Tuesday, lawyers of the BNP chairperson filed an appeal with the High Court challenging her sentence in the graft case. The court fixed Thursday for hearing it.

On February 8 last, the Dhaka Special Court-5 convicted the former Prime Minister and BNP chairperson and sentenced her to five years' imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

She was then sent to old central jail at Nazimuddin Road in the city.
