Deputy Commissioner SM Mostafa Kamal said a five-member probe body, led by Additional Deputy Commissioner Md Bodiuzzaman, was formed on Sunday and it was asked to submit its report within seven working days.

Superintendent of Satkhira Medical College Hospital Dr Shahjahan Ali said they constituted a three-member investigation committee with Dr Ruhul Kuddus of the Urology department as its head to look into the medicine recovery and the committee was directed to place its report within the next seven days.

The recovered medicines bear no government seal and these are not even from hospital's medicine store as well, he claimed.
