Khaleda suffered mild stroke: Physicians

72

Dhaka, June 09: The four personal physicians who met BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zai at the Old Central Jail on Saturday feared that she might have suffered a mild stroke.“BNP Chairperson 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,” said Prof SM Siddique of Dhaka Medical College Hospital DMCH Medicine Department.

Prof SM Siddique was talking to reporters after visiting the former prime minister of the country at 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 at 4 pm.

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.
