Ruling party lawmaker Haji Salim has filed an appeal seeking quashing of his 10-year prison sentence handed down by a lower court over graft charges.
He also filed for bail.
His lawyer Syed Ahmed Raza said on Tuesday that an appeal, which also sought bail for Haji Salim, has been filed with the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) against the HC verdict.
The hearing of the appeal and bail plea may be held next week in the appellate division.
Earlier on Monday, the Dhaka-7 lawmaker got admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) after spending a day in jail.
BSMMU (Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University) director, Brig Gen Nazrul Islam, said Haji Salim was admitted to the hospital around 10:30am.
"He is suffering from heart disease and undergoing treatment under the supervision of Professor Dr Harisul Haque," he added.
"It cannot be said exactly how long Haji Salim needs to stay at the hospital for treatment," Nazrul Islam said, adding that his doctors will decide the course of his treatment.
On Sunday, rejecting his bail plea, a Dhaka court sent Haji Salim back to jail on corruption charges for which he has been convicted.
In 2007, ACC filed a case against Haji Salim with Lalbagh Police Station for accumulating wealth illegally.
In April 2008, the trial court sentenced him to 13 years in prison and fined him Tk20 lakh.
