He was arrested in Gulshan on July 20, on charges of Covid-19 testing and treatment scams

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested Faisal Al Islam, managing director of Shahabuddin Medical College Hospital, for conducting Covid-19 tests without approval and scamming patients with wrong treatment. 

He was arrested in Gulshan, Dhaka at around 9pm on Monday, RAB sources confirmed. 

Earlier on Monday, Lt Col Ashique Billah, director (legal and media wing) of RAB, told Dhaka Tribune that they had filed a case against Faisal, son of the hospital’s chairman, Mohammad Shahabuddin, as well as Assistant Director Dr Abul Hasnat and Inventory Officer Shariz Kabir Shadik. 

The accused list includes four or five unnamed people too. 

Dr Abul Hasnat and Shariz Kabir Shadik were arrested on Sunday during a raid at the hospital, Lt Col Ashique Billah said.

RAB officials said the hospital had been treating Covid-19-negative people as Covid-19 patients, to draw massive amount of bills, and they had also been charging excessive money from patients.

At least 14 Covid-19 patients were receiving treatment at the private facility and the hospital charged them extra, besides making claims to the patients that they had conducted some tests multiple times without actually carrying out the tests, according to RAB.

Besides, the hospital was giving antibody tests without the health authorities’ approval, and a fake Covid-19 test report was provided for money.

RAB further said the hospital's licence to operate medical treatment expired in June 2019.
