A Cumilla court on Thursday denied bail plea of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in a case filed over the torching of a covered van in Chouddagram upazila in 2015.

Judge of the District and Session's Judge Court KM Shamsul Alam passed the order after hearing a bail petition moved by BNP chief's lawyers, reports UNB.

Earlier on Wednesday, the court deferred the bail hearing until Thursday.

The court heard both the defence and prosecution in the morning and passed the order in the afternoon.

On January 25, 2015, a covered van was set on fire at Haiderpool of Chouddagram municipality on the Dhaka-Chattogram highway.

The following day, sub-inspector Nuruzzaman of Chouddagram Police Station filed a case against the BNP Chairperson and 31 other leaders and activists of the party over the incident.
