Khaleda faces sedition complaint for ‘meeting ISI official’ in London
A sedition complaint was lodged against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia with a court here on Wednesday allegedly for holding a secret meeting with an official of Pakistani intelligence agency ISI in the United Kingdom.
Bangabandhu Foundation Executive Chairman Mashiur Rahman filed the complaint with the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Abdullah Al Masud in the morning.
The court is set to pass an order in this regard in the afternoon.
In his complaint, Mashiur claimed that during her stay in London, Khaleda met ISI official Junaid at Taj Hotel on July 18 and 19 last.
The meeting was held to instigate anarchy in the country, and deteriorate the Bangladesh-India relation and take it towards war, he alleged.
He came to know about the meeting through different media reports and investigation conducted by Bangabandhu Foundation’s London unit, Mashiur said.
Last year, Mashiur filed another sedition case against the BNP chief on January 25 which is still under trial. unb
