Arrest warrant issued against Khaleda

A Dhaka court has issued arrest warrant against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in a case filed over undermining the country's map and national flag.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nur Nabi issued the arrest warrant on Thursday.

The court also fixed November 12 to submit report on execution of the arrest warrant.

Earlier on September 17, the same court ordered Khaleda Zia to appear before it on October 5 or face arrest warrant if fails to comply with the order in the case.

OC (investigation) Moshiur Rahman of the police station submitted the report to the court on February 25.

According to the report, Khaleda Zia had formed a coalition government with Jamaat-e-Islami in 2001. She appointed ministers from the party and handed over the map and the national flag to them who were against the Liberation War of the country.
