One of the twins is in DMCH in critical condition

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested the owner of 'Amar Bangladesh Hospital' on Friday over the death of an infant in the capital’s Shyamoli.

The arrestee is Mohammad Golam Sorowar, 57, son of Munshi Ishak Ali Sikder in North Manik Nagod area of Mugda, said a press release.

Earlier the child, who was one of twins, died on the road after 'Amar Bangladesh Hospital' authority forced their mother out of the hospital, refusing treatment at not getting the money.

Later, the victim's mother filed a complaint with Mohammadpur Police against the owner and director of the hospital.

Based on the complaint, RAB-2, RAB-3 and the detective branch of RAB headquarters ran a drive on Friday and arrested Golam Sorowar from Mohammadpur.

According to the press release, the twins had been undergoing treatment in the hospital since January 2. But they were kicked out from the hospital on Thursday afternoon as their mother was unable to pay the due money.

Another child has been admitted to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital in critical condition.

The mother of the two children claimed that she was victimized by the brokers of the hospital authority.

During primary interrogation, the arrestee confessed that he has brokers in several public hospitals to bring the patients to his hospital, the release added.

The victim's mother said "I have paid Tk 40 thousand. Unable to pay the rest, I requested them but they did not listen and forced me out with my children."
