    DHAKA: Former PM and opposition leader Khaleda Zia's "fugitive" elder son and 29 others were on Sunday indicted by a special Bangladeshi tribunal over a 2004 grenade attack on current PM Sheikh Hasina's rally that killed 24 people and injured her.

    "Charges were framed as the allegations against them were proved primarily," judge Shahed Nuruddin of Dhaka's Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 pronounced , also indicting ex-junior minister for home Lutfuzzaman Babar besides Zia's son- Tarique Rahman- and 28 others, formally launching the trial of the case.

    The judge set March 28 for hearing the witnesses' testimony as several senior police and army intelligence officials were also found involved in the attack, said to be carried out by HuJI operatives.

    Khalida Zia is a nut nurtured by ISI over the years. This news is of no surprise.

    The next elections will not be between AL and BNP but between RAW and ISI to see which party forms the government. RAW had better pull up its socks.
