BNP leaders and activists formed a human chain in front of the National Press Club in Dhaka on Monday demanding their Chairperson Khaleda Zia's release from jail.

The programme began around 11:00am and ended at 12:00pm while the same programmes are being holding in the metropolitan areas and district towns.  

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and the senior leaders of the party joined the programme.   

On February 8, Khaleda Zia was sent to jail after a special court sentenced her to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
