Earlier in the day, a High Court bench of Justice AKM Asaduzzaman and Justice JBM Hassan granted permission to Khaleda to file the bail petitions after her lawyers sought it
The lawyers of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia have filed separate petitions with the High Court seeking her bail in three cases.
The solicitors filed the petitions Sunday afternoon.
Among the three cases, two were filed in Cumilla on charges of plotting to carry out subversive acts, and another in Narail on charges of defamation, said Advocate Khandaker Mahbub Hossain.
On Sunday morning, a High Court bench of Justice AKM Asaduzzaman and Justice JBM Hassan granted permission to Khaleda for filing the bail petitions after her lawyers sought it.
Later, the High Court bench fixed June 7 as the date of hearing for the bail pleas of the two Cumilla cases, Khaleda's lawyer said.
The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the High Court order that had granted bail to convicted BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
However, the BNP chief was not freed from jail, as she was shown arrested in cases filed with different police stations in Cumilla, Dhaka, Narail, and Panchagarh.
The BNP chairperson is now facing a total of 36 cases.
Eight people were killed and at least 20 others injured when assailants hurled a petrol bomb at a bus in the Jogmohanpur area of Chouddagram under Cumilla district during the BNP-led alliance's protests on February 3, 2015.
Two cases – one under the Explosive Substances Act and another for murder – were filed against Khaleda Zia in connection with the incident.
On December 21, 2015, Khaleda Zia, at a discussion at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, raised questions about the actual number of Liberation War martyrs, saying: "There are controversies regarding how many were martyred in the Liberation War."
In reaction to Khaleda's remark, a defamation case was filed against her with a Narail court on December 14.
