Former Bangladesh PM Khaleda Zia Gets five years in jail for corruption



BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia entered the premises of the old Central Jail in Nazimuddin Road after she was handed a five-year imprisonment in a graft case today.

She will be kept at the day care centre at the old central jail.

Khaleda, who is being accompanied by her domestic help, was taken to the jail on a white SUV surrounded by a contingent of law enforcers from the Special court at Bakshirbazar.

Judge Md Akhtaruzzaman sentenced the BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to five years in jail after she was found guilty in the Zia Orphanage Trust Corruption case.

Her eldest son and BNP’s Senior Vice-Chairman Tarique Rahman and four others was awarded 10 years in the case with a fine of Tk 2.10 crore each in the politically significant case ahead of the parliamentary election.
