The High Court has dropped from the cause list the writ petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia challenging the government's move to hold trial in 17 cases against her inside Keraniganj Central Jail.

The HC bench of Justice Moinul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Md Ashraful Kamal passed the order on Sunday as it has no jurisdiction to hear the writ over a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan told UNB.

He said the hearing might take place at the bench concerned.

Opposing him, BNP chairperson's counsel AJ Muhammad Ali said although the case was filed by the ACC, the writ challenged government's move to shift the court which has no link with the anti-graft body.

On May 28, Barrister Kayser Kamal filed the petition on behalf of Khaleda Zia.

On May 13, the law ministry issued separate gazette notifications regarding setting up a makeshift court inside Keraniganj jail and holding the trial in 17 cases against Khaleda there.

The newly-constructed building-2 of the central jail was declared the makeshift court as per the Sub-Section 2 of Section 9 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
