A special court on Tuesday set July 24 for holding a hearing on whether to accept a supplementary charge-sheet filed against BNP Acting Chairman Tarique Rahman in a case filed under now replaced Digital Security Act (DSA) for declaring his father Ziaur Rahman as father of the nation.

Judge AM Julfikar Hayat of Dhaka Cyber Tribunal passed the order today, bench assistant Jewel Miah told the BSS.

On December 2, 2023, investigation officer sub-inspector Hasanuzzaman of the Detective Branch filed the supplementary charge sheet.

According to the charge-sheet, the BNP leader at a party meeting declared Ziaur Rahman father of the nation and gave weird logic behind this. His aim was to destabilize the stable situation prevailing in the country, the charge-sheet said.

Dhaka University Chhatra League leader Zahidul Islam filed the case with Shahbagh Police Station on February 25, 2021.
