Fakhrul meets Khaleda at jail

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir went to Nazimuddin Road Old Central Jail on Friday to meet their party's ailing chairperson Khaleda Zia, reports UNB.


Fakhrul entered the jail around 5pm to meet the BNP chief, said Khaleda's media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan.


Fakhrul was scheduled to meet Khaleda earlier on March 29 last, but it was postponed as she suddenly fell sick in jail on that day.


On April 1, the government formed a medical team comprising four professors of Dhaka Medical College Hospital to examine her health condition and ensure her treatment in jail.


However, Khaleda refused to receive treatment from them.


On February 8 last, a special court here sentenced Khaleda to five years' imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.


Khaleda, a 73-year-old former prime minister, was taken to the old central jail minutes after the verdict had been delivered.
