MNA Editorial Desk: A Dhaka court has placed JKG Healthcare Chairman Dr Sabrina Arif Chowdhury on two-day fresh remand in a case lodged over issuing fake coronavirus test reports.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Masudur Rahman passed the order on Friday as investigation officer and detective branch inspector Liyakat Ali produced the suspended registrar doctor of National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases before the court and pleaded to place her on five-day fresh remand, reports BSS.
Earlier on July 13, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahinur Rahman had placed her on three-day remand in the case.
During her remand, police brought Sabrina and her husband, partner in crimes, Ariful Chowdhury face to face and interrogated them.
Police officials said the cunning doctor tried to put all the blames on her husband’s shoulder, saying she only served as a volunteer at JKG.
Sabrina was shown arrested on July 12 after interrogating her primarily at the office of deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Tejgaon Zone.
JKG Healthcare run by Sabrina and her husband and its chief executive officer Ariful Chowdhury was realising money from the suspected patients for coronavirus test, whereas the company had inked a deal with the government to conduct the test free of cost.
The fraud company was even faking the signatures and seals of government agencies in making forged corona test reports, while throwing away the samples taken from suspected patients.
Police on June 24 arrested Ariful and four others including JKG’s former graphics designer Humayun Kabir Heru and his wife Tanjina Patwari.
