Khaleda Zia to go to hospital for health check-ups this afternoon

Dhaka- BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia will visit Evercare Hospital on Saturday afternoon for health check-ups.

"Madam (Khaleda) is scheduled to go to Evercare Hospital around 3pm today for health check-ups as per the advice of her medical board,” Sayrul Kabir Khan, a media cell member of BNP, told UNB.

Khaleda, a 76-year-old former prime minister, has been suffering from various ailments, including liver cirrhosis, arthritis, diabetes, kidney, lung and eye problems.

She visited the same hospital for health check-ups on April 6.

She was last admitted to Evercare Hospital on November 13 last year where she was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis.

On February 1, she returned home after an 81-day stay in the hospital as she was suffering from internal bleeding caused by the liver cirrhosis problem.

Khaleda was sent to the Old Dhaka Central Jail as a lower court sentenced her to five years’ imprisonment in Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case on February 8, 2018. Later, she was found guilty in another corruption case the same year.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, the government temporarily freed Khaleda Zia from jail through an executive order suspending her sentence on March 25, 2020, with conditions that she will stay in her Gulshan house and will not leave the country.
