A Dhaka court on Tuesday set January 29 to start recording depositions of prosecution witnesses in Dandy Dyeing loan default case against BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and 15 others, reports BSS.
"The First Money Loan Court set the date while accepting a time plea from the defence," BSS quoted a court official.
According to the case details, the accused in 1993 took a loan of Taka 131.4 million from Sonali Bank against Dandy Dyeing. The bank disbursed a fresh loan in 1996 against the same company.
The outstanding loan stood at around Taka 427 million in 2010.
Later, the bank filed the case in 2013, accusing the defendants of defaulting on repayment of a loan of Taka around 450 million.
