A Dhaka court has put Abdus Salam, the alleged mastermind in leaking medical and dental admission test question papers from DGHS press in a five day remand on Tuesday.

Salam, known as the machine-man of Bureau of Health Education, was arrested from Banasree area of Dhaka on Monday by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), said CID Cybercrime Unit Special Police Superintendent SM Ashraful Alam in a press briefing on Tuesday at its head office.

The alleged mastermind of the ring had leaked questions in 2013 and 2015, he said. 

In primary interrogation Abdus Salam disclosed that five to six doctors and three to four coaching centres are connected with the ring.

He was discharged from his job after CID pressed a charge sheet against him in 2015 over a murder in Manikganj.

Police discovered his connection with the ring after arresting another mastermind Jasim Uddin and his associates Zakir Hossin Dipu and Parvez Khan on July 19 this year, said SM Ashraful Alam.

A case had been lodged against Jasim Uddin and his associates in Mirpur model police station on July 20.

During the investigation, CID had also arrested another seven people for their alleged involvement with the question leak.

During interrogation, they found the name of Abdus Salam, and based on the information they arrested him.

Ashraful Alam said: “Abdus Salam of the Bureau of Health Education had taken questions away while printing them.”

“Later on, his maternal cousin circulated the question to students who opted to get admitted into medical colleges through the ring by paying a hefty amount of money.”

CID found 38 bank accounts of Jasim, cheques worth Tk2.30 crore and savings certificates worth Tk2.27 crore.

Besides, cheques of Tk84 lakh have been seized from Parvez.

Moreover, police have found 14 bank accounts of his wife Shilpi containing Tk3.18 crore. 

The CID official told reporters that they asked for a 10 days remand for Salam, but the court only approved five days.

CID cyber police unit started investigating into the medical and dental admission question leaks after they got a clue of it during the investigation of Dhaka University’s 'D' unit admission test question leak in 2018.
