The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a case against Mohammad Shahed Karim, Regent Group chairman, Mahbubul Haque Chisty, former chairman of Farmers Bank audit committee, and two others. 

The four accused, including Mahbubul Haque Chisty’s son Rashedul Haque Chisty and Regent Hospital Ltd Managing Director Ibrahim Khalil, were involved in misappropriating about Tk2.71 crore in January, 2015. 

ACC Deputy Assistant Director Mohammad Shahjahan Miraj filed the case on Monday morning, confirmed ACC Director (Public Relations) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya. 

The case was approved in a regular meeting held at the commission’s headquarters in the capital on Sunday. 

On July 22, the commission filed a case against Regent Group boss Shahed, and three others, on allegations of embezzling Tk1.51 crore from NRB Bank.  

ACC Assistant Director Sirajul Haque filed the case with its Integrated District Office 1 in Dhaka.  

Others who are accused in the case are, Ibrahim Khalil, former principal officer of SME Banking at NRB Bank, Sohanur Rahman, and Vice President of SME Banking at NRB Bank, Wahid Bin Ahmed.  

On July 15, law enforcement agencies arrested Shahed after eight days of investigation and raids in Dhaka and different districts. 

Shahed and the hospital he owns, have been the talk of the town since the beginning of this month, after security agencies raided the hospital for the involvement of its authorities in providing fake Covid-19 certificates to people, and embezzling money from patients. 

Meanwhile, Farmers Bank has been renamed as Padma Bank in an effort to recover its image tarnished by irregularities and loan scams.
