He said the application, on which the government has suspended the jail sentence of Khaleda Zia and released her from jail on two conditions, has been disposed of and has become a "past and closed transaction".

According to the conditions, Khaleda Zia has to receive treatment at her residence and cannot go abroad and therefore, there was no scope to allow her to go abroad, Anisul said.
