Fakhrul admitted to BBSMU after HC order


BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir was admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) on Saturday following a High Court order.
The BNP leader was taken to the BSMMU from Kashimpur Central Jail-2 around 2pm and admitted to its prison ward, BNP chairperson’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan told journalists.Earlier on June 9, the High Court directed the jail authorities to immediately admit Fakhrul to the BSMMU for better treatment.
Nasir Uddin, a guard of prison-2 of Kashimpur Jail, said Fakhrul was sent to the BSMMU in an ambulance around 10:30am in compliance with the HC order.
On May 5, the jail authorities sent the BNP leader to the BSMMU following doctors’ advice as he has been suffering from various serious diseases, including (carotid arteries) blockage in the nerve of his neck, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart complications.
The BSMMU authorities subsequently formed a six –member medical board to treat him. But he was sent to Kashimpur Jail in Gazipur the same day as the medical team found the BNP acting secretary general in a ‘stable’ condition.
Later, Fakhrul’s wife Rahat Ara Begum filed a writ petition with the HC seeking its direction upon the prison authorities for admitting her husband to BSMMU or BirdemHospital for proper treatment.
On January 6, plainclothes police picked Fakhrul up as he came out of the Jatiya Press Club after nearly 25 hours of stay there following BNP’s announcement to observe January-5 as ‘Democracy Killing Day’, protesting the 10th parliamentary polls held on the day.
The BNP leader is now facing 79 cases. – UNB
