Khaleda Zia returns home from hospital
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has returned home this evening from Evercare Hospital after almost two months, said Syrul Kabir Khan, an official of Khaleda's press wing.
Khaleda was admitted to Evercare Hospital on April 28, three days after testing positive for coronavirus for the second time.
She first tested positive on April 11.
She also has arthritis, diabetes and eye problems.
She was taken to Evercare Hospital's Coronary Care Unit (CCU) with breathing difficulties. Later, she tested negative and was shifted to a cabin from CCU.
The government released Khaleda from jail on March 25 last year, suspending her sentence as per section 401 (1) of the Criminal Code of Procedure. The suspension was later extended twice.
The BNP chairperson landed in jail on February 8, 2018, after a special court sentenced her to five years in prison in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case. On October 30, 2018, the High Court raised her punishment to 10 years.
