The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has approved another case against Mohammad Shahed Karim, Regent Group chairman, for embezzling Tk1 crore from Padma Bank Ltd (formerly Farmers Bank).

The case was approved in a regular meeting held at the commission’s headquarters in the capital on Sunday, said ACC Director (Public Relations) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya.

On July 22, the commission filed a case against Regent Group boss Shahed, and three others, on allegations of embezzling Tk1.51 crore from NRB Bank. 

ACC Assistant Director Sirajul Haque filed the case with its Integrated District Office 1 in Dhaka. 

Others who are accused in the case are, Regent Hospital Ltd Managing Director Ibrahim Khalil, former principal officer of SME Banking at NRB Bank, Sohanur Rahman, and Vice President of SME Banking at NRB Bank, Wahid Bin Ahmed. 

On July 13, the ACC decided to probe the allegations against Regent Hospital owner Shahed and formed a four-member probe committee to that end. Following this, the anti-graft body on Tuesday decided to file a case against Shahed and three of his accomplices.

In 2014, a Tk2 crore loan was cleared by NRB Bank without any collateral.

Three FDRs were created with Tk1 crore. The remaining Tk1 crore was left unpaid, and Shahed now owes NRB Bank, Tk1.51 crore including interest, according to case details.

On July 15, law enforcement agencies arrested Shahed after eight days of investigation and raids in Dhaka and different districts.

Shahed and the hospital he owns, have been the talk of the town since the beginning of this month, after security agencies raided the hospital for the involvement of its authorities in providing fake Covid-19 certificates to people, and embezzling money from patients.
