A Dhaka court on Tuesday extended the bail term of former director general (DG) of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) Prof Dr Abul Kalam Azad in a case filed over the much-talked-about Regent Hospital scam.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of the Senior Special Judge's Court of Dhaka extended the bail until January 23, 2022 after the former DGHS DG sought an extension of his bail term in the case.

Earlier on October 7, the same court granted bail to Dr Azad after he surrendered before the court and sought bail in the case.
