A court here on Sunday deferred until November 25 the hearing on a petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia seeking bail in a murder case filed over the deaths of eight people in an arson attack on a bus here in 2015.

Judge of the Additional District and Session’s Judge Court-3 Abdur Rahim set the date following a time petition filed by the prosecution, said Khaleda’s lawyer Advocate Kaimul Haque Rinku.
