A special court granted bail to BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia in the two graft cases - Zia Orphanage Trust and Zia Charitable Trust- here on Tuesday morning.
Dhaka Special Court-5 Judge Md Akhtaruzzaman passed the order in response to bail petitions.
Khaleda Zia today surrendered before the makeshift court of Special Judge-5 at Bakshibazar and sought bail in the cases.
Khaleda is now placing her self-defense statement.
Earlier, on November 30, the court issued an arrest warrant for Khaleda Zia in two graft cases after cancelling her ad-interim bail as she failed to appear before it on time.
