A Dhaka court Monday set March 22 for holding hearing on charge framing in Barapukuria Coal Mine graft case against BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and others, reports BSS.

Judge Nazrul Islam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-2 passed the order, accepting a time plea from the main accused - Begum Khaleda Zia.

Monday was fixed for holding hearing on charge framing, but prime accused Begum Khaleda Zia could not appear before the court, because of her 'poor health condition'. Her lawyers filed the time plea, which was eventually accepted.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on February 26, 2008, filed the graft case against Khaleda Zia and 15 others with Shahbagh police station.
