Additional law enforcement agency members have been deployed in front of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s Gulshan political office this morning, sources say.

Private TV channel NEWS24, a sister concern of the Daily Kalerkantho, has also reported the news.

The verdict of Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and her son Tarique Rahman will be delivered today.

Earlier, Judge Md Akhtaruzzaman of the Special Court-5 in Dhaka fixed the date on January 25 after the defence closed their arguments.

On December 19, the prosecution concluded their argument and sought the maximum punishment for Khaleda.

On July 3, 2008, the ACC filed Zia Orphanage Trust graft case with Ramna police accusing Khaleda, her elder son Tarique Rahman and four others of misappropriating over Tk 2.1 crore that was received as grants for orphans via a foreign bank.
