A hospital owner in Bangladesh who was charged with giving a large number of fake negative Coronavirus test results to patients at his two centers has been arrested.

Mohammad Shahid, the owner of Regent medical clinic in Dhaka, Bangladesh, was arrested following a nine-day manhunt over claims he gave counterfeit clearance certificate to patients saying they were coronavirus free without testing them. Police said he was caught while attempting to escape to India in a burqa.

The 42-year-old was one of twelve individuals confined by security officials regarding the trick. A notable specialist and her spouse were also arrested by police and charged with giving a great number of fake negative test results at their Dhaka research facility. “He was caught at a riverbank trying to escape to India.

He was wearing a face covering,” Bangladesh’s security forces told newsmen. “His medical clinics conducted more than 10,000 COVID-19 tests, and out of that number, at least 4,000 of them were original and almost 6,000 test reports, were given without conducting any tests.”

Shahid is also accused of requesting payments before issuing the clearance certificate and also for the medicines used for the COVID-19 after promising the government is will be done free of charge”.

His arrest comes seven days after Italy suspended trips to Rome from Bangladesh after a few travelers showing up from Dhaka tested positive for Covid-19. As indicated by Shakirul Islam of transient rights bunch OKUP, a portion of the individuals who tested positive in Italy were supposedly carrying negative coronavirus clearance certificates from Bangladesh.

Bangladesh has recorded more than 193,000 cases and 2,457 deaths from Coronavirus up until now.
