The medical board formed by the government for Bangladesh Nationalist Party chairperson Khaleda Zia’s treatment said on Tuesday that Khaleda had problems on her shoulder, hand and hip bones.
‘However, her blood reports were found normal,’ Dhaka Medical College Hospital Professor Shamsuzzaman Sheheen, head of the four-member medical team, told reporters in the afternoon.
Khaleda Zia’s X-ray reports suggested that she had problems in her shoulder, left hand and hip bones, said Shamsuzzaman, also the head of orthopaedic department of DMCH.
Earlier on Saturday, Khaleda was taken to the radiology and imaging department of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University for various tests, including several x-rays of her bones, at the suggestion of the medical board.
On April 1, the government formed the medical team with four professors of DMCH to examine her health and ensure her treatment in the jail.
Later, the four doctors suggested that some medical examinations, including x-ray on her different bones and joints and blood tests, should be conducted.
On completion of the tests at BSMMU, Khaleda Zia was taken back to the jail.
On February 8, a special court in Dhaka sentenced Khaleda to five years’ rigorous imprisonment in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. She has been kept at the Old Dhaka Central Jail since.
