The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has sued Rangpur Medical College (RMC) Principal, Prof Dr Md Nur Islam, and five others for reportedly embezzling nearly Tk4.49 crore of government money.

ACC Deputy Director (DD) Ferdous Rahman initiated the case under the Prevention of Corruption Act from their Rangpur district office on Thursday, confirmed the office’s DD, Abdul Baset.

The five others  accused are: Dhaka-based Bengal Scientific and Surgical Company owner, Md Zaher Uddin Sarker, Mercantile Trade International owners Md Abdus Sattar Sarker and Md Ahsan Habib, Universal Trade Corporation owner Md Asadur Rahman, and RMC’s Community Medicine Department Assistant Professor, Md Sarwat Hossain.

They have been accused of buying unnecessary and inapplicable medical equipment of poor quality for the college, engaging in forgery.

According to ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya, the misappropriation took place between March 23, 2018, and June 30, 2018.

According to case details, Prof Nur worked with Zaher and the others in getting the tender passed and procuring the unnecessary and poor quality equipment, all without prior approval from the Directorate General of Health Services.

In the process, they embezzled Tk4,48,89,300 from the government exchequer.

An official of ACC’s Rangpur office, requesting anonymity, said they were conducting raids to arrest the six accused.
