A Dhaka court on Thursday issued an arrest warrant against BNP’s Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi and seven others in a case filed under the Special Powers Act.
Dhaka Metropolitan Session Court judge KM Imrul Kayes issued the warrant taking the charge sheet against 33 BNP leaders into cognizance.
The court set February 22 for submitting the report of action on the arrest warrant.
In January, 2015, police filed the case with Badda police station for which the court was supposed to hear the charges today.
None of the eight BNP leaders were present at the hearing.
