Khaleda kept confined for 8th day


BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has been kept confined to her Gulshan office in Dhaka for the eighth consecutive day.

Two pick-up vans and water cannon, which were kept in front of the office since Sunday midnight, are still there.

However, the main gate of the office was found unlocked since 8:00pm yesterday.

The security in front of the office seems quite relaxed today, reports our correspondent from the spot.

Khaleda was confined to her office since Saturday midnight.

Protesting her confinement in her Gulshan office and the locking of the party office by police, Khaleda called an indefinite countrywide blockade which started from January 5
