The Mugda Medical College and Hospital authorities have submitted to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), documents and files pertaining to the living expenses of doctors, nurses, and other medical staff at Hotel 71.

A delegation of the Covid dedicated hospital submitted the documents to  Investigating Officer and ACC Deputy Assistant Director, Mohammad Shahjahan Miraj, on Tuesday.

ACC Director (media) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

The Mugda Medical College and Hospital and Hotel 71 authorities  are being investigated by the ACC for their alleged involvement in irregularities with regard to arranging food and accommodation for doctors, nurses, and others providing medical care to Covid-19 patients.

On July 9, the national anti-graft commission sent two separate letters seeking information from the authorities of Mugda hospital and Hotel 71 for further investigation.
