DMP commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia said at the court premises, "The personal security personnel of Khaleda Zia will not be allowed to enter the court with their arms. There is administration to provide security to Khaleda Zia. We will arrange security for her (Khaleda Zia). `
Meanwhile, Khaleda Zia will reach the court at 11 am, said her lawyer Sanaullah Mia.
