Bangladesh authorities on Thursday sent former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia back to jail after a month of treatment in a hospital in Dhaka. 

An official said, Khaleda Zia was sent as the specialised state-run hospital certified her fitness to serve the 10-year prison term after she was admitted to the hospital on October 6 following a High Court order. 

Home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said, she was sent to the jail after a medical examination of her health by doctors as the ex-premier was taken back to the old premises of Dhaka Central Jail where Zia is the lone inmate. 

Zia was serving 10 years of the prison term in two graft cases at the correction centre until she was admitted to the BSMMU hospital for treatment due to different ailments.
