Senior Correspondent: BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia might have suffered a mild stroke in jail, according to her personal physicians.
Four personal physicians met BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zai at the Old Central Jail on Saturday.
“Khalade Zia collapsed on the ground on June 5 but she cannot memories the time of the incident. We think she has suffered a mild stroke,” Prof SM Siddique of Dhaka Medical College Hospital DMCH Medicine Department told reporters after emerging from the jail.
He, however, said more physical examinations of Khaleda need to be done in a specialised hospital to know whether she had suffered any stroke as well as to know what the present health condition of the former prime minister is.
Earlier, SM Siddique along with three other personal physicals of the BNP chief--Prof Wahidur Rahman, Prof MA Kuddus and Prof MD Alamin-- met her at the old central jail in the afternoon.
They have examined her for more than one and half hours, he said adding that a four-page recommendation about her treatment was handed over to the prison authorities.
Asked, Prof Siddique said Khaleda can communicate but there is ‘inertia’ in her.
