A Dhaka court has placed Regent Hospital Chairman Shahed Karim on a 10-day remand for his alleged involvement in providing fake Covid-19 certificates and embezzling money from patients.

The court also placed Masud Parvez, the managing director of the hospital, on a 10-day and Tariqul Islam alias Tareque Shibli, close associate of Shahed, on a 7-day remand.

Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim passed the order on Thursday after the Detective Branch (DB) of Police sought 10-day remands for the trio.
