BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi Ahmed has alleged that the prison authorities are not letting anybody including party s jailed Chairperson Khaleda Zia s relatives to meet her.
"Khaleda Zia s close relatives have not been allowed to meet her for last 21 days. The jail authorities are not responding despite repeated pleas. The former Prime Minister is also being deprived of lawful facilities for an inmate inside the prison," he said.
The senior BNP leader came up with the allegation in a press briefing at the party s Naya Paltan central office on Monday.
"As per the jail code, an inmate is allowed to meet a visitor once in a week. But, for Khaleda Zia, it is once in 15 days. Now, the prison authorities are violating the 15-day rule as per the government instruction," Rizvi said terming it a severe mental torture .
He also alleged that false cases are being filed against the party leaders and activists after the parliamentary polls.
