The High Court has adjourned, until October 1, the hearing of a writ petition seeking its directive on the authorities concerned to provide better treatment for jailed BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia.

The bench of Justice Sheikh Hasan Arif and Justice Ahmed Sohel passed the order on Tuesday for a detailed hearing on the petition. 

The writ petition, filed on September 9, states that Khaleda has been suffering from chronic diseases and needs to be admitted to a specialized hospital for better treatment.

Six people, including the: home secretary, inspector general of prisons, Dhaka civil surgeon, deputy commissioner, were made respondents.

On September 16, a medical board said they found no symptoms of a serious disease in Khaleda Zia.

The board, formed by the government, suggested admitting the former prime minister to a hospital like Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) where treatment is available for all health problems.

On February 8, a special court sentenced the BNP chief to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. Since then she has been imprisoned at Old Dhaka Central Jail.
