Raushan Ershad taken to Bangkok for better treatment

Ailing opposition leader Raushan Ershad reached Bangkok in Thailand on Friday night.

An air ambulance carrying Jatiya Party chief patron Raushan reached Bangkok around 9:30 pm, said her assistant private secretary Mamun Hasan.

Earlier, Raushan Ershad left Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka for Bangkok on an air ambulance at 6:25pm for better treatment.

She will be admitted to the Bumrungrad Hospital there.

Raushon is accompanied by Rahgir Almahe Ershad MP (Rangpur-3) and his wife Mahima Ershad.

The JaPa sources said Raushan Ershad was admitted to the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka on August 14 with an unusual level of carbon dioxide in her lungs. She has been receiving treatment at the same hospital since then with a little improvement.

On April 29, Raushan, the 78-year-old widow of former military ruler HM Ershad, was admitted to the CMH after she fell ill, and she received treatment there for 24 days at that time.

She was elected from Mymensingh-4 constituency during the 11th parliamentary election.

Raushan has been performing as the Leader of the Opposition in Parliament for the second consecutive term.
