DHAKA, June 12, 2018 : Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said here
today they will take BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia to the Combined
Military Hospital (CMH) for conducting necessary wellness check if the party
“Khaleda Zia will be taken to the CHM for necessary medical checkups if
BNP denies taking her treatment at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical College
Hospital (BSMMU),” he said at his Secretariat office here.
“We have prepared a proposal to bring Khaleda Zia to the CMH for
conducting wellness check and there is no scope for them to deny the hospital
as it is an affluent one,” he said.
“I will request personal and trusted physicians of Khaleda Zia to be
present at the time of conducting Khaleda Zia’s physical examination,” he
said, adding that he could not understand why Khaleda Zia doesn’t want to go
BSMMU Hospital as it is a well-equipped and modern hospital.
The minister said this upon filling a petition over sending Khaleda Zia
to the United Hospital for conducting health checkups.
A three-member representative of BNP led by Khaleda Zia’s younger brother
Shamim Iskander today submitted the petition after meeting Home Minister
Asaduzzaman Khan at his office.
“The government has taken the highest effort for Khaleda Zia’s physical
examination in accordance with the jail code and she will be treated as per
the advice of civil surgeon and physicians of prison,” he added.
