Two courts in Dhaka on Thursday issued arrest warrant against BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia in separate cases-- a defamation case and a graft case.

Dhaka special judge court-5 judge Md Akhtaruzzaman passed the order as the BNP chief failed to appear before court timely in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
