The Rapid Action Battalion has detained four members of a fraud ring for allegedly selling fake Covid-19 certificates.

Acting on a tip-off, the law enforcement agency arrested Fazal Haque, 40, Sharif Hossain, 32, Jamshed, 30, and Liakat Ali, 43, in Dhaka’s Mugda area on Monday afternoon.

The RAB 3 team, in the course of its drive, also seized several fake Covid-19 certificates and equipment used for manufacturing the certificates.

Sujoy Sarkar, senior assistant director of RAB (legal and media wing), said some people who did not test positive for Covid-19 or did not have any symptoms of the disease collected fake Covid-19 positive certificates to get additional benefits from the government.

On the other hand, some people collected Covid-19 negative certificates from this gang to travel overseas or join their workplaces, added the RAB official.

The matter was being investigated, he said.
