The Bangladesh Government has granted permission to three United States-based physicians to come to the country to treat former prime minister and Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chairperson Khaleda Zia.
The Bangladesh Home Ministry and Foreign Ministry gave the permission following an application of the BNP chairperson’s family, a BNP leader confirmed on Tuesday.
The physicians will come to Dhaka within a day or two, he said.
The physicians are Christos Georgiades, James Peter Adam Hamilton and Hamid Ahmed Abdur Rabb.
Without disclosing the name, the BNP leader said that one of them had already reached Dhaka and two others would reach soon.
BNP chairperson’s press wing member Shamsuddin Didar said that Khaleda Zia, who is now undergoing treatment at Evercare Hospital in Dhaka, was shifted to the cabin again from the Coronary Care Unit this morning.
