Police kept BNP's Naya Paltan office cordoned off since Saturday morning as the party was scheduled to bring out of a procession
BNP has been granted permission to hold a brief rally instead of protest procession in front of party office at Naya Paltan in the capital to press its demand to release Khaleda Zia from jail.
Earlier, police kept BNP's Naya Paltan office cordoned off since Saturday morning as the party was scheduled to bring out of a procession, Somoy TV reports.
Police did not allow anyone to stand in front of the office for the protest programme.
BNP on February 12 announced of bring out the procession from their Nayapaltan central office at 2pm on Saturday and it will end at the Jatiya Press Club.
Earlier, Fakhrul announced that their party would stage demonstrations across the country on Saturday to push for their demand to have Khaleda freed.
Khaleda has been in jail since she was convicted in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case on February 8, 2018. She was found guilty in another corruption case later the same year, though her party claims both cases are politically motivated.
The BNP chief has been receiving treatment at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University since April 1 last year.
