Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu said on Tuesday that BNP Chief Khaleda Zia can be arrested in a killing case.
The minister said this at a press conference held at the secretariat in the morning.
"If a murder case can be filed against the contractor for the death of four-year-old Jihad at Shahjahanpur Colony, then a case can be also filed against the BNP chief for instigating to set fire to a three-wheeler CNG-run auto-rickshaw," the minister said.
Inu said, "Khaleda Zia is delivering speech instigating her supporters to carry out anarchy. She has been kept refrained from further instigation."
Responding to a question of the reporter if BNP chief can be arrested or not, Inu said, "The home ministry is handling the matter."
