The High Court has rejected the bail application of disgraced Regent Hospital chairman Mohammad Shahed alias Shahed Karim in a case of fraud and embezzlement.

Bashir Ullah said the court did not grant bail to Shahed in the case filed by a businessman with Uttara West police station for non-payment of dues for sand bought for construction. The trader used to supply sand to Md Shahed's company.

But Shahed kept turning around without paying. Shahed even called the businessman in the name of paying him and instead had him beaten up. After Shahed's arrest for irregularities at Regent Hospital, he filed a case with Uttara West Police Station, said Bashir Ullah.
