BNP will stage demonstrations across the country on Friday protesting its chief Khaleda Zia's verdict in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

As part of their two-day demonastration programme, party leaders and activists will stage demonstrations across the country after Juma prayers.

Party Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Thursday made the announcement immediately after the verdict, reports UNB.

Amid heightening tensions and various speculations, a special court here on Thursday convicted the former prime minister and sentenced her to five years' imprisonment in the much-talked-about Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
