    BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia today filed two separate petitions with the High Court seeking stay on arrest warrants against her in two corruption cases. The latest petitions have been submitted as supplementary to her two other petitions she had filed expressing no-confidence in a trial court judge, who is dealing with Zia Orphanage and Zia Charitable Trust graft cases. The petitions will be included in the hearing list of the HC on Thursday, AKM Ehsanur Rahman, a counsel for Khaleda, told The Daily Star this afternoon. Citing from the petitions, he said the lower court has issued the arrest warrants against Khaleda on February 25 although her “no-confidence” related petitions, which were filed on January 28, were pending with the HC. The arrest orders are illegal and unethical, he added. The HC on March 2 fixed...

Every day around noon, Md Ujjal Hossain pauses at his banana orchard to admire how well the fruit of his labour has turned out. “Look at the banana stems -- they have grown so well. I was dreaming of getting a bounty from them,” said the 34-year-old grower from Meherpur, a major farming district in the southwest. The non-stop countrywide blockade and shutdowns from January 6 though have killed off his hopes. Earlier in December last year, he cut a deal with a trader for 350 bunches of banana for Tk 150 each. But the trader, who sends the fruits over to Chittagong, slashed the price to Tk 130 per bunch, citing transport fare...

SO far BNP's political programme has cost 113 lives. Sixty of them were victims of arson attacks on buses and public transport. More than 1,200 vehicles have been destroyed by fire or damaged by miscreants. One hundred thirty people are writhing in agony in the burn units.
