A Dhaka court will pass an order this afternoon whether it would accept the case filed against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia today for her defamatory remark about Gopalganj that created quite a stir.
Mojibur Rahman Mollah, founder president of Bangladesh Awami Muktijoddha League, filed the case with the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate Md Asaduzzaman Nur this morning, a day after a similar case was filed against her.
After holding hearing on the complaints, the court decided to pass an order on it later in the day.
Yesterday, Bangladesh Jananetri Parishad, a pro-Awami League organisation, sued the BNP chief over the same issue but the same court dismissed the case.
Fumed at the police personnel who barred her from leaving her Gulshan residence to join the opposition’s “March for Democracy”, Khaleda came down hard on the law enforcers Sunday.
In the presence of reporters on the lawn of her house, she told a female officer, “Where is your home town? Gopali [Gopalganj]? The name of Gopalganj district will be changed… Gopalganj will cease to exist.”
