Khaleda taken to jail illegally: Fakhrul

08 Nov,2018


BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has been taken to prison illegally, her party’s Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged.

“Doctors did not release her. This was all the doing of the hospital’s director,” Fakhrul told reporters at the gates of old central jail on Nazimuddin Road.

He was reflecting on Khaleda’s shifting to jail, which took place earlier in the day, from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University.


BNP Standing Committee Member Nazrul Islam Khan has labelled the move “inhumane.” “She needs more treatment. Doctors have said she will become paralysed without proper treatment. Instead, they’ve taken her to prison,” he said.
