Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has received a total of 140 complaints since Friday night against Regent Group Chairman Shahed Karim alias Md Shahed.

Lt Col Ashiq Billah, director (legal and media) of RAB, revealed the information during a press briefing in Dhaka on Sunday. 

He said: “Of all the complaints received, 120 were submitted through our hotline number and 20 via email. RAB will carry out investigations against the complaints.”

In the complaints Shahed has been accused of extorting money for government jobs and transfers, not paying the bills of construction material suppliers, defaulting on bank loans, and issuing fake licenses for rickshaws among many other things.  

“Many of the complainants were from expatriates. Meanwhile, Regent Hospital employees have told us that their salaries were not cleared by Shahed,” he added. 

Earlier on Friday, RAB had set up a hotline for the victims of Shahed’s frauds so that they could lodge complaints and seek legal help.

The hotline number – 01777720211 – is still open and will remain so for the next two to three days, said the RAB official, adding that people can also send emails regarding the issue at this address—[email protected]

The Regent Group Chairman Md Shahed alias Shahed Karim was arrested on July 15, two days after a Dhaka court issued an arrest warrant against him in two cases filed over misappropriation of Tk3.68 crore.

Detective Branch (DB) police are now quizzing Shahed in remand over various charges including issuing Covid-19 false reports.
