Detained Awami League President Sheikh Hasina became very sick at the sub-jail on the Jatiya Sangshad Bhaban premises due to high blood pressure.
However, her condition improved after a while.
The former prime minister, who has also long been suffering from complications of eyes, ears and kidneys, fell down in her room, as she felt dizzy.
Hearing the news, a number of party workers, leaders, relatives and doctors rushed to the jail gate to enquire about Hasina's health.
Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has the details.
