The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has filed a case against Regent Hospital Chairman Mohammad Shahed alias Shahed Karim after recovering counterfeit money from his secret office in Uttara.

The case was filed in Uttara West police station early onThursday.

Uttara West Police Station Officer In-charge (OC) Topon Chandra Shah confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

Shahed was arrested on the bank of Labangaboti canal in Komarpur village under Satkhira’s Debhata upazila on Wednesday while trying to flee across the border to India.

After his arrest, Shahed was flown to Dhaka by a helicopter.

Upon returning to Dhaka, RAB raided Shahed’s secret office at Uttara Sector 11, and claimed to have recovered around Tk146,000 of counterfeit money from there.

RAB also filed a case against Shahed on Wednesday for possessing illegal firearms at the time of his arrest.

Earlier, on July 6, RAB raided the Uttara and Mirpur branches of Regent Hospital on complaints that the hospital was issuing fake Covid-19 certificates, as well as charging exorbitant fees for Covid-19 testing and treatment of patients. RAB also found evidence of at least 6,000 fake Covid-19 test certificates during the raid.

The next day, RAB filed a case against 17 people, including Shahed, with Uttara West police station. Later, 10 other people were arrested in the incident.

On July 11, RAB seized the passport and the computer of Shahed, also the chairman of Regent Group, after conducting a drive at the hospital's Uttara branch. The passport and the computer were found at the hospital's kitchen.
