Cumilla arson case: SC order on petition Sunday
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia: File photo

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Thursday fixed Sunday for delivering order on a petition filed by the state seeking stay on the High Court order granting six months bail to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in an arson case filed under the Special Powers Act in Cumilla.

A four-member Appellate Division bench, led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, fixed the death after the hearing on the petition.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam stood for the state while Advocate AJ Mohammad Ali represented Khaleda.

Earlier on Monday, the High Court granted a 6-month bail to the BNP Chairperson following a bail petition in the arson case.

Later, the government filed a petition seeking a stay on the HC order on the following day.

Earlier on July 23, the HC directed the Cumilla Special Judge Court-1 to dispose of the bail petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in the case within July 26.

Khaleda's lawyer filed a bail petition with High Court as the Cumilla court rejected the bail petition of Khaleda on July 25.

Eight people were killed and 20 others injured when miscreants hurled a petrol bomb at a bus at Jogmohanpur in Chouddagram of Cumilla district during the BNP-led alliance's movement on February 3, 2015.

Two cases were filed against Khaleda in this connection.

On February 8, Khaleda Zia was sent to jail after a special court sentenced her to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. UNB
