Hasina's Deputy Press Secretary Ashraful Alam Khokan told bdnews24.com that she went to see Chaudhury around 7:45pm on Monday and stayed there for around 45 minutes.

Army chief General Abu Belal Mohammad Shafiul Huq and the Prime Minister's Military Secretary Maj Gen Mia Mohammad Joynul Abedin were also present.

"The prime minister spent some time with the speaker, asked how she was doing and wished her a speedy recovery," Khokan said.

A Parliament source said the speaker suddenly fell ill on Saturday night. She was first taken to a private hospital, and later transferred to CMH that night.

The source said Chaudhury was suffering from high blood pressure. Medical tests on her later had revealed some viral infections.

President Md Abdul Hamid and Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha also visited her at CMH on Sunday evening.
