Dhaka: A court in Bangladesh on Monday extended the bail of ex-Prime Minister Khaleda Zia until March 13 in a graft case, a day after the High Court deferred the judgment on a separate bail plea, media reports said. The Dhaka Special Judge’s Court-5 set March 13 as the date for the next hearing of arguments in the Zia Charitable Trust graft case and extended the bail of Ms. Zia until then, bdnews24 reported. “The court has set March 13 and March 14 for the next two days of arguments. Zia’s bail has been extended until March 13,” her lawyer Nuruzzaman Tapan was quoted as saying in the report.
