BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has been taken to a hospital in Dhaka for a medical check-up.

He was admitted to Evercare Hospital in Bashundhara on the advice of his doctors on Sunday after he reported feeling sick, according to Prof AZM Zahid Hossain, vice chairman of the BNP.

"Doctors will run a few tests on him. But he is healthy now," said Zahid.

In 2015, Mirza Fakhrul went to Singapore for treatment after a block was found in the internal carotid artery of his neck while he was in jail. He has since been travelling to Singapore every year as no treatment is currently available for the condition in Bangladesh.

The BNP leader was recently released from jail on bail following his arrest over a violent clash outside the party headquarters in Dhaka last month.
