A Dhaka court today sent JKG Healthcare Chairman Dr Sabrina Arif Chowdhury to jail in a case lodged over issuing fake coronavirus test reports.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Atikul Islam passed the order as investigation officer and detective branch inspector Liyakat Ali produced the suspended registrar doctor of National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases before the court after end of her two-day remand and pleaded to keep her behind the bars.
Earlier on July 17, police took Sabrina on two-day fresh remand.
Sabrina was shown arrested on July 12 after interrogating her primarily at the office of deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police's Tejgaon Zone.
JKG Healthcare run by Sabrina and her husband the healthcare's chief executive officer Ariful Haque Chowdhury was realising money from the suspected patients for coronavirus test, whereas the company had inked a deal with the government to conduct the test free of cost.
The fraud company was even faking the signatures and seals of government agencies in making forged corona test reports, while throwing away the samples taken from suspected patients.
