The imprisoned journalist’s husband Monirul Islam and some family members were seen before the prison at the time of her arrival.
Stating that Ms Islam was physically unwell, Monirul Islam said the authorities concerned should see to her treatment.
Health Ministry officials handed Rozina Islam over to the police on Monday after confining her at the office of Saiful Islam Bhuiyan, personal secretary to Health Services Division Secretary Lokman Hossain Miah.
She was later sued under the Official Secrets Act and the Penal Code for “theft and photographing” of official documents.
On Tuesday, a Dhaka court turned down an appeal by the police to quiz Rozina Islam in custody for five days.
