Six family members met Khaleda Zia at BSMMU on Friday afternoon

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's sister Selima Islam says the former prime minister's physical condition has deteriorated further and she needs better medical care on an emergency basis.

She talked to reporters after meeting her sister at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) in Dhaka on Friday, reports UNB.

Selima said: "Her health condition has worsened. She is unable to move or eat without anybody's help.

"Her hands and legs have gotten stiff. She urgently needs better medical treatment."

When her attention was drawn to BSMMU physician assertions that the BNP chief is fine, she said the doctors were not telling the truth.

 "We have seen her actual condition," she said.

Asked, she said Khaleda can go abroad for treatment if the government allows her. "But she did not tell us anything about it."

Six family members, including Selima, her younger brother Shamim Eskandar, his wife Kaniz Fatema, their two sons, and a daughter-in-law, went to meet Khaleda around 3:15pm and had nearly an hour-long meeting, said BNP chairperson's media wing member Shamsuddin Didar.

Khaleda has been in jail since being convicted in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case on February 8, 2018. She was found guilty in another corruption case later the same year, though her party claims both cases are politically motivated.

The BNP chief has been receiving treatment at the BSMMU since April 1 this year.
