Keraniganj prison to be Begum Zia`s destination

BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia was kept in the old Dhaka central prison at Nazimuddin Road. But due to security reasons, she is now being shifted to Keraniganj Central Jail. And the proceedings of the case of the Special Judge Court of Dhaka will be held there from now on. There was buzz for a long time that Khaleda Zia may be transferred to Kashimpur High Security Prison or a newly formed central jail.

The pending cases against BNP chairperson were being run in the temporary court situated at the administrative center of the old central jail. But since the government has recently decided to convert the old central jail into a museum, extensive development and renovation work has been started there. In such a situation, the security of BNP chairperson has become vulnerable. In view of this, the government has decided to conduct the trial proceedings of the case of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia at no 2 administrative building of Keraniganj prison. Already a gazette notification was issued by order of President on May 12.
