The court of Dhaka's Third Special Judge Abu Ahmed Jamadar set Jan 7 for the next hearing in the case filed by the Anti Corruption Commission after accepting a plea by the defence for more time on Wednesday.

Amid a clash between BNP activists and government supporters outside the court, set up at Bakshibazar's Alia Madrasa ground, the former prime minister's motorcade arrived at around 12.20pm.

Khaleda left the court around 1:10pm.
