Doctors: Sending Khaleda abroad for treatment not necessary
The medical board formed by the government for BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's treatment on Sunday said she does not need to go abroad for treatment right now. "Khaleda Zia's physical condition apparently looks good. There's no necessity to send her abroad for treatment at the moment as it's possible to ensure the treatment here," Prof Dr Shamsuzzaman Sheheen, head of the four-member board, told UNB. He, however, said they were yet to receive the reports of Khaleda's medical tests conducted at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) hospital on Saturday. Shamsuzzaman, also the head of Orthopaedic Department of the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), said Khaleda's conditions would be assessed properly once they received her x-ray reports. Khaleda had long been suffering from pain on her shoulder, as well as her left hand and leg and the pain has recently intensified, he added. On Saturday, Khaleda was taken to BSMMU’s Radiology and Imaging Department for various tests. Several x-rays of her bones were taken at the medical board's suggestion. On April 1, the government formed the medical team with four DMCH professors to examine her health condition and ensure proper treatment for her in the old Dhaka Central Jail. Later, the doctors suggested conducting some medical examinations, including x-rays of different bones and joints and blood tests. Upon completion of her tests at BSMMU, she was taken back to the jail. After the BNP chief's departure, BSMMU Director Abdullah-Al-Harun told reporters that her health condition apparently looked good but her real condition would be known once the x-ray reports were in hand. He said four doctors – Dr Wahidur Rahman, Dr Mamun, Dr FM Siddique, and Khaleda’s personal physician in the jail, who was preferred by Khaleda – were present during the whole process. Former prime minister Khaleda fell sick in jail on March 29. On February 8, a special court sentenced Khaleda to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case.
