Although all preparations were taken, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia was not taken to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) on Sunday for treatment as she expressed her unwillingness to go there.
Briefing reporters at 1 pm at the hospital premises, BSMMU Director Brig General Abdullah Al-Harun said that Khaleda Zia won’t be brought here as she refused to get admitted to the hospital.
"Earlier the jail authorities told us that Khaleda Zia will be brought here and we prepared cabins for admitting her. But later they informed us that Khaleda Zia won’t be brought here as she declined to get admitted to BSMMU."
Earlier on Sunday morning, the authorities took preparations to take Khaleda Zia to the hospital for ensuring her better treatment as per the court order.
On March 4, a high-profile BNP delegation led by its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir met Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan to discuss Khaleda Zia’s health condition and her treatment.
BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia has been in jail since a special court convicted her in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on February 8 last year.
