Three including an assistant director of Shahabuddin Medical College Hospital were detained on charges of unauthorised antibody test on patients to detect Covid-19 and test report forgery.
A mobile court led by Executive Magistrate Sarwoer Alam conducted a drive in the afternoon and found the anomalies, Lt Col Ashique Billah, Rab’s Legal and Media Wing director told The Daily Star.
The hospital authorities have been deceiving patients in the name of detecting Covid-19 through rapid test kits which are not approved by the government yet, he said.
The Rab drive assisted by the representatives of Directorate General of Health Services was still on at the time of filing this report at 8:30pm.
Earlier on July 7, a mobile court led by Sarwoer sealed off Regent Hospital over Covid-19 test report forgery.
A case was filed against Regent Group chairman Md Shahed and Rab arrested him from Satkhira on Wednesday while he was trying to flee the country.
Ashique Billah said the Shahabuddin Hospital authorities started Covid-19 tests with the unauthorised kits since April and also provided Covid-19 reports without testing samples.
