An arrest warrant has been issued on Thursday against BNP Senior Vice-chairman Tarique Rahman in the Zia Charitable Trust graft case.
Judge Abu Ahmed Jamadar of Dhaka Special Judge’s Court-3 passed the order and denied his bail.
The court also asked BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to appear before it on Monday. Otherwise, her bail will be cancelled, the court said.
