Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained a person, reportedly of a gang that makes and sells fake certificates,from Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Monday.

The arrested, Arif, a ward boy at DMCH, admitted his involvement in the illegal enterprise during primary interrogation, said RAB-3 Company Commander (CPC-2) Major Jahangir.

Jahangir said, acting on a tipoff, RAB conducted a drive in the nursing college of DMCH from12pm to 3pm on Monday and arrested Arif.

Fake birth and death certificates, fake injury certificates including stamps, were recovered from there.

Stamps and fake cerficates recovered during the drive on December 2, 2019 | CollectedInitial information suggests that not only Arif, but other employees of DMCH are also involved in this fraudulent activity, he said, adding that Arif made and supplied fake certificates within a short time.

The RAB official added, that for a long time an organized crime gang has been selling fake injury and death certificates, and other medical related certificates.

In many cases, an injury or death certificate is required for a police report. One has to go through the official system to acquire such certificates, which is time-consuming. So the gang forges signature of the respective authorities for money, he added.

Many people have filed false cases on the basis of fake certificates, Jahangir said.

The matter is being investigated and legal action will be taken, RAB said.
