ACC to inquire into Shahed’s 
‘illegal wealth’

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday decided to make an inquiry into the allegations of amassing money illegally by Md Shahed, the Chairman of Regent Group.

The anti-graft body has already formed a three-member committee headed by its Deputy Director Abu Bakar Siddiqui to make the inquiry.

ACC Director (Public Relations) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee made the disclosure on Monday.

There are allegations against Shahed that he amassed huge amount of money through microcredit business, multi-level marketing (MLM), forgery, dodging tax and taking bank loans with forged documents.

Earlier on July 7, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) filed a case against Shahed and 16 other staff of Regent Group and Regent hospitals after a mobile court found evidence of fake corona test certificates issued by the hospital.

The elite force also found that the hospital charged patients exorbitantly for their tests and treatments violating an agreement with the government.

Currently, Shahed is wanted in a case. The National Board of Revenue (NBR) on Sunday directed banks to freeze all the accounts of the accused.
