Khaleda can take treatment at CMH: Asad

  • Print



Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan has proposed to take BNP chief Khaleda Zia to Dhaka's CMH for medical tests, hours after her family sought permission from the home ministry to take her to the United Hospital.
Inspector General of Prisons Syed Iftekhar Uddin told reporters on Tuesday morning: "Jail authorities decided to take her to BSMMU, but she is not willing to take treatment there."
Following the IG prisons' statement, a BNP delegation on behalf of Khaleda's family went to the Home
 Ministry, seeking to transfer her to the United Hospital.
After receiving the application, Khan said: "We will propose to take Khaleda Zia to the CMH [Combined Military Hospital] for best treatment in line with the jail code."
"If she wants to go there, we can arrange medical tests for her. We will try our best for her treatment."
On a question, Khan said: "The Bangabandhu Medical University and CMH are better than any private hospital. Specialist doctors are there. Moreover, the CMH has played a role in many crisis moments. Considering this, we will offer treatment at the CMH."
According to the IG prisons, Khaleda prefers to take treatment at the United Hospital.
On a question whether there is any scope for considering the application for the treatment at the United Hospital, Khan said, "I do not think no more argument is needed for this."
"If Khaleda Zia or her family rejects the proposal of taking treatment at the CMH, we'll take next steps as per the situation."
The BNP has long been demanding the government to take 73-year-old Khaleda to the United Hospital for medical tests.
On June 5, she had a fall, prompting renewed pressure from the BNP to get her the best treatment.
