Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that Khaleda Zia landed in jail following the verdict in Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case and “she has not been shown arrested” in any other case.
The home minister came up with the remarks as multiple news outlets ran news claiming that Khaleda was shown arrested in several cases.
+He also added that the BNP chairperson is being given all facilities according to the jail code.
Responding to an allegation that Khaleda is being kept in an old and decrepit building, the home minister said Kashimpur jail is far away and there is no female ward in the central jail in Keraniganj.
“That’s why she is being kept there for her convenience,” he said.
On February 8, Khaleda was sent to jail in Dhaka after she was handed a five years’ rigorous imprisonment in the graft case.
