EC blocks Dr Sabrina’s NID cards

The Election Commission (EC) has blocked two national identity (NID) cards of JKG Health Care Chairman Dr Sabrina Arif Chowdhury, who is now in jail in a case filed on charge of issuing fake Covid-19 certificates.

Director General of the National Identity Registration (NID) Wing of the Election Commission (EC) Brigadier General Saidul Islam confirmed the news.

The EC also asked the authorities concerned to file a case with Gulshan police station against Sabrina for making two NID cards by providing false information.

Dr Sabrina currently has two national identity cards in circulation. The name “Sabrina Sharmin Hossain” is mentioned on both the cards, however, the Bengali spellings of the names are different.

On both the NIDs, her father’s name is the same but her mother’s name is Kishore Jasmine on one card and Jasmine Hussain on the other. Similarly, her husband’s name is RH Haque on one and Ariful Chowdhury on another.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) found two NIDs of the Dr Sabrina Arif Chowdhury, and sent a letter to the EC seeking explanation how Dr Sabrina had two active NIDs.

Besides, the anti-graft body also found two Tax Identification Numbers (TINs) of Dr Sabrina.
