Narail: A court here on Tuesday denied bail to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in a case filed over her 'derogato-ry remarks' about freedom fighters.
Judge Sheikh Abdul Ahadof of the District and Session's Judge Court passed the order after hearing the bail petition.
Earlier on May 30, Judge Sheikh Abdul Ahad set Tuesday for passing an order on the bail petition filed by BNP's international affairs secretary Adv Masud Ahmed Talukder.
On December 21, 2015, Khaleda Zia at a discussion at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh raised questions about the actual number of Liberation War martyrs saying, "There're controversies over how many were mar-tyred in the Liberation War. There're also many books and documents on the controversies."
Reacting over the Khaleda's remarks, Raihan Farooque Imam of Naragati filed a case with the Cognizance Court on December 24, 2015.
