Four family members of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia met her at the old central jail on Nazimuddin Road in Old Dhaka on Friday.

Khaleda's brother Shamim Iskander along with the three other family members arrived around 3pm at the prison and sought permission to meet with her.

Iskander was accompanied by his wife Kaniz Fatema, son Avik and Khaleda’s sister Selina Rahman.

Deputy Inspector General (prisons) Md Touhidul Islam said that they entered the prison around 3:30pm.
