Information Minister Hasan Mahmud on Friday said no one else but the government has uncovered the irregularities committed by Regent Hospital.
The minister came up with the remarks while talking to reporters at Awami League President’s political office in Dhanmondi in the evening.
“Government agencies filed two cases and operated drives at two branches of the hospital. They did it on their own, not based on any media report,” he said.
“It’s not true that Regent Hospital owner Shahed had sometimes identified himself as a major, colonel, Awami League leader or official of PM’s office for fraud. We’ve inspected it …Shahed was not in any committee of Awami League either,” the minister said.
According to different media reports, he said, Shahed had connections with Hawa Bhaban during the BNP regime and also was in jail for two years.
