Tarique admitted to London hospital

BNP leader Tarique Rahman was admitted to a hospital in South London on Thursday evening for the treatment of his drying-up leg muscle.
Dr Kazi Mazharul Islam Dolon, who went to London with Tarique, told the news agency tonight that Tarique is receiving physiotherapy at the hospital. But he did not name the hospital for security reasons.
He said Tarique is under treatment of British doctor James Turner of Wellington Hospital. “If the physiotherapy does not work, Tarique may need surgery.”
Dolon said Tarique cannot stand up on his feet straight due to the drying-up of his right leg muscle. After the leg muscle treatment, he said, doctors may treat his damaged spinal cord.
Earlier, his medical test was done at three different hospitals -- Hammersmith, King's Oak and Wellington Hospitals.
Tarique, the eldest son of former prime minister Khaleda Zia, was arrested in a number of graft cases but he was released on bail on September 3 on health grounds.
He went to London for treatment on September 11.
