Shahed who was accused in a total of 59 cases was trying to flee to India with the help of a local smuggler.

On Tuesday, the elite force arrested managing director of the Regent Hospital Masud Parvez from Gazipur district.

Shahed had been absconding since Rab raided the Uttara and Mirpur branches of his hospital on July 6, and arrested eight people on charge of issuing fake Coronavirus test reports in addition to charging the admitted Covid-19 patients exorbitant fees.

The head office of Regent group along with the both hospitals was sealed off and 16 people, including the chairman, were sued on charge of issuing fake coronavirus test reports.
