Online Desk : A Dhaka court on Monday issued an arrest warrant against Md Shahed, the owner of Regent Hospital and chairman of the Regent Group, in connection with two cases filed over misappropriation of money.
Metropolitan Magistrate Md Mainul Islam passed the order taking two cases into congnisance.

Earlier, Md Saifullah Masud, proprietor of Masud Enterprise in Karwan Bazar, filed the cases with the court against Shahed over the allegation.

The court also asked the Uttara West Police Station OC to submit a report by August 13 after executing the order.

Shahed is currently wanted by the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) for Covid-19 report scam.

On June 7, a RAB team led by Magistrate Sarwar Alam raided Uttara branch of Regent Hospital and found around 6,000 fake Covid-19 reports, which had been sent out without conducting any tests.

The hospital is also accused of charging Tk 3,500 per test, despite of it being a Covid-19 dedicated hospital.

Later, the RAB sealed of both Uttara and Mirpur branches of the hospital.
