Bangladesh President Iajuddin Ahmed, who had been hospitalised on Tuesday, may be flown to Singapore for treatment, a media report said on Wednesday.

Ahmed might be admitted to the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore after he fell ill on Tuesday with respiratory complications, 'The New Age' said quoting unidentified sources.

There was no official confirmation of the report.

A medical team has been formed to treat the 75-year-old leader and recommend the future course of action.

"The medical team was observing whether he needs to go abroad or not," said Mukhlesur Rahman Chowdhury, press secretary to the president.

Ahmed was admitted to the Combined Military Hospital in Dhaka last afternoon, but his office gave no details about his condition.
