He will be produced before a Chittagong court in connection with a case filed over embezzling Tk91 lakh
Chairman of Regent Group Md Shahed alias Shahed Karim has been taken to Chittagong Central Jail on Saturday afternoon.
On Sunday, he will be produced before a Chittagong court in connection with a case filed with Chittagong’s Double Mooring police station for misappropriating Tk 91 lakh from a businessman.
Md Kamal Hossain, Senior Jail Super of Chittagong Central Jail confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune.
Zia Uddin Md Jahangir, a Chittagong-based importer of motor parts and proprietor of Mega Motors lodged the case with Double Mooring police station in the city.
According to the case documents, the plaintiff alleged that Chairman of Regent Group Md Shahed misappropriated Tk 91.25 lakh of him through deception.
Previously on September 28, a Dhaka court had sentenced Shahed to life term imprisonment in an arms case.
Shahed was arrested by Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) from Satkhira in the early hours of July 15 when he was trying to flee to India on a boat. He was later airlifted to the capital.
Four days later, a DB police team found Shahed's car in front of a house on Sector 11 in Uttara West area. They seized a pistol with a single bullet from the car and the case was filed under the Arms Act at Uttara West police station.
Shahed was on the run since health officials and RAB raided the Uttara and Mirpur branches of Regent Hospital on July 6, following complaints that the hospital was issuing fake Covid-19 certificates, as well as charging exorbitant fees for the testing and treatment of patients.
RAB also found evidence of at least 6,000 fake Covid-19 test certificates during the raid.
The next day, RAB filed a case against 17 people, including Shahed, at the police station.
