A Dhaka court has ordered BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia to appear before it on 9 January, in connection with 10 cases filed against her.

Dhaka metropolitan sessions judge Mohammad Kamrul Hossain Molla passed the order on Thursday.

Her bail will be cancelled should she fail to appear before the court on that day, according to the order.

Thursday (1 December) was fixed for framing charges against  the BNP chief in nine cases filed under explosives control act and special powers act and one for treason, Khaleda Zia's lawyer Zainal Abedin said.

She could not appear before the court in these cases for she had to appear before another court on Thursday, the lawyer said.
