The government today filed a petition seeking stay on the bail given to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia by the High Court in Cumilla arson attack case.

Deputy Attorney General Dr Mohmmad Bashir Ullah filed the petition with the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court bench concerned.

The chamber judge of the Appellate Division is likely to hear the petition on March 25.

Earlier on March 6, former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia secured a six-month interim bail in the case.

Eight people were killed and 20 others were injured when a petrol bomb was hurled at a bus at Jogmohanpur in Chouddagram of Cumilla during the BNP-led alliance’s movement on February 3, 2015.

On February 27, Khaleda’s lawyer moved the HC after a subordinate court in Cumilla rejected her bail petition on February 4.
