BNP has made an allegation that their Chairperson Khaleda Zia has been taken back to jail without the 'discharge certificate' from the medical board of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).

The party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir  came up with the allegation while talking to reporters at the gate of Old Central Jail at Nazimuddin Road in the city yesterday.

Mirza Fakhrul said, "According to the information we've received, the medical board didn't give her any discharge certificate, and they said she's very sick and she shouldn't be taken to hospital in any way under her current condition." "The government has shifted her back to the jail and kept her in it out of its political vengeance," he added.

Khaleda Zia was taken to a makeshift court at the old Central Jail from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) yesterday and produced her before it for hearing of the Niko graft case.Khaleda Zia was in the erstwhile Dhaka Central Jail at Nazimuddin Road since she was sentenced to five years' imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case on February 8.

On October 6, she was admitted to the BSMMU after prison authorities shifted her there from old Dhaka Central jail for better treatment in response to a court order.Later, a medical board was formed headed by Prof Abdul Jalil Chowdhury and she had been receiving treatment as per the board's suggestion.
