The opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has called for a mass political rally in Chittagong on Saturday, July 20, to demand the release of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia. Demonstrators are expected to gather at Kazir Dewri intersection. Localized transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are expected; clashes with security forces cannot be ruled out.
Khaleda Zia, former prime minister and BNP Chairperson, was sentenced to five years in prison in 2018 on corruption charges.
Individuals in Chittagong are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the vicinity of the rally, and anticipate localized transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence.
