Ailing former prime minister and BNP chairperson Khalea Zia on Wednesday wanted to know from her lawyers who met her in the Old Dhaka Central Jail whether she would get the medical treatment she needs.
After leaving the jail gate, her lawyers, Sanaullah Mia and Masud Ahmed Talukder told waiting reporters that she wanted to know from
them why she was not being taken to hospital.
She told her lawyers that she needed treatment at hospital as her condition was far from good, said Sanaullah.
Asked whether Khaleda would appear at the next hearing in the Zia Charitable Trust Case on September 20, Masud said that she is so sick that she fell in bathroom again and her health condition would not permit her presence in the hearing.
Dhaka Central Jail officials at Keraniganj told New Age, replying to telephonic questions, that they did not yet get the report from the medical board, government formed for Khaleda Zia.
On Sunday, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University director brigadier general Abdullah Al Harun told reporters at a news briefing that the government appointed medical board had on Sunday sent its medical report with recommendations about Khaleda Zia’s treatment to the jail authorities.
