The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) had an agreement with the Regent Hospital in the capital to test coronavirus samples.
The hospital was later sealed on charge of fraudulence and Law enforcement agencies are making efforts to arrest Regent Group chairman Shahed.
Under such a situation, DGHS DG Abul Kalam Azad has been served a show cause notice regarding the agreement with Regent Hospital on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said Regent Group chairman Md Shahed alias Shahed Karim must surrender to police as the government has taken necessary steps so that he cannot go abroad.
Talking to reporters at his ministry on Sunday, Kamal also said Shahed has no way to go abroad since his passport has been seized.
He also said law enforcers will arrest the fraudster if he does not surrender to police.
Meanwhile, many of Shahed’s colleagues have been arrested on charge of fraudulences, but the fraudster is still out of reach.
Earlier on Tuesday night, Rab filed a case against 17 persons, including Shahed, on charge of Covid-19 certificate forgery and illegally taking money from patients.
Police also imposed a restriction on his departure of the country in the interest of proper investigation of the case.
Police on Thursday sent a letter to the immigration department in this regard.
