A Comilla court on Thursday set September 30 for a murder case bail petition hearing filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in connection with the arson attack in Comilla on Feb 3, 2015.

Senior Judicial Magistrate court-5 Judge Golam Mahbub Khan set the date after a time petition was filed by the prosecution, said Khaleda’s lawyer, Advocate Kaimul Haque Rinku.

Two cases, one under the Explosive Substances Act, and another for murder, were filed over the incident.
