 A Dhaka court on Monday set July 29 for the appearance of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia before it in 11 cases filed against her.

Monday was fixed for the appearance of the BNP chief before the court but Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Ash Shams Jaglul Hossain reset the date as Khaleda Zia failed to appear before the court because of her "poor health".

Of the 11 cases, eight were filed with Darus Salam police station and two others were filed with Jatrabari police station for her role in BNP's vandalism during its hartal in 2015.

Of these, 10 cases were filed by police while a sedition case was filed against the BNP chief by an individual. 

Later in 2016, police submitted a charge sheet against Khaleda and others accused.

Along with Begum Zia, the notable accused in these cases are BNP leaders Amanullah Aman, Habib-un-Nabi Khan Sohail and Sultan Salauddin Tuku.
