Detained Awami League (AL) President and the former Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who has been suffering from several health related complications, was taken to a city hospital on Thursday for medical check-up for the first time since her arrest. S
he was taken back to the special jail on the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban premises after about three hours of check-up by a 10-member medical team at Square Hospital amid tight security.
Sheikh Hasina has been suffering from several complications including fluctuating blood pressure , skin allergy and problems in her ears. Her ears almost deafened after severe bomb blasts in her meeting in 2005.
Sheikh Hasina’s doctor says that they are recommending that Hasina should be sent abroad for her ear treatment. Jail authority says it is not within the jail code that anyone jailed can be sent abroad.
