A writ petition was filed with the High Court on Sunday seeking its directive on the authorities concerned to hospitalise BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia again for her better treatment.
BNP chief’s lawyer Barrister Nawshad Jamir filed the writ with the bench concerned of the court at noon.
Barrister Nawshad said the hearing on the writ petition is expected to be held on Monday at the bench of Justice Sheikh Hasan Arif and Justice Rajik Al Jalil.
Barrister Kaisar Kamal, BNP’s law affairs secretary, said, “Khaleda’s treatment was going on as per the HC directives but she was sent back to jail although her treatment was not completed.”
“We sought the continuation of her (Khaleda) treatment as she is still ill,” he added.
According to the writ petition, Khaleda needs to be taken to a specialised hospital for better treatment as she has been suffering from chronic diseases.
On October 6, Khaleda Zia was admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) for her better treatment in response to a court order.
On November 8, Khaleda was discharged from the BSMMU upon approval from the medical board formed for her treatment and produced before a makeshift court at old Central Jail in Niko graft case.
On February 8 last, a special court here sentenced Khaleda to five years’ rigorous imprisonment in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
