BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Thursday alleged that ‘ailing’ party chairperson Khaleda has been taken back to old central jail from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) ‘unlawfully’. 

“The government forcibly and unlawfully has taken Khaleda Zia to the court. As per the information we’ve received, the medical board didn’t give her any discharge certificate, and they said she’s very sick,” he said while talking to reporters at the gate of Old Central Jail on Thursday.

Mentioning that Khaleda Zia should not be taken back to jail in such a condition, Mirza Fakhrul alleged that the government is confining Khaleda to jail out of its ‘political vengeance’.
