On May 3, the BNP chairperson was shifted to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) of the hospital after she had complained of breathing problems. At present, she is undergoing treatment at the CCU of the hospital. A 10-member medical board, led by cardiologist Dr Shahabuddin Talukder, is overseeing Khaleda’s treatment at the hospital.

Meanwhile, Khaleda Zia’s family has applied to the government seeking permission to send her abroad for better treatment which is now under process.
