Speaking at a human chain programme, he also said when people, irrespective of their party and opinion, want Khaleda to be sent abroad, the current government and prime minister Sheikh Hasina are not allowing her to go there for treatment out of serious political 'vengeance'.

"We would like to clearly say if anything bad happens to Khaleda Zia for the lack of advanced treatment, then each of them (in the govt) will be tried making them accused of a murder case," the BNP leader said.

As part of their countrywide programme, BNP's Dhaka south and north city units arranged the human chain in front of National Press Club, registering their protest against the 'unilateral' 10th parliament election held on 5 January, 2014.

Fakhrul said the AL government sent Khaleda to jail by convicting her in "false" cases as part of its "blueprint of depoliticisation and eliminating the BNP chief". He said Khaleda Zia is now fighting for life in a hospital in the capital with a very critical health issue.

The BNP leader said physicians are saying it is now essential to send Khaleda abroad, but the government is not taking any step in this regard. "Instead, they're trying to fool people on the pretext of law. No law is greater than a human life."
