Additional Director General (administration) Professor Dr Nasima Sultana claimed innocence as she told Police's detective branch (DB) team that the Director General was involved from the beginning with the JKG scam.
"He knows everything and I also warned him once but he did not pay heed. Now he has to pay the cost," the ADG told the DB officials during the investigation
DB sources also told The Business Standard that according to Nasima Sultana, JKG was going to launch their operation in Chattogram too.
"All was happening in coordination with the Director General, but all of a sudden JKG's CEO Ariful Haque Chowdhury was arrested," said DB sources.
According to another DB source, DG Abul Kalam Azad will be asked to come over to the detective office for further investigation.
Later, the DB team also quizzed another director who has been transferred on Wednesday over a scam of the recent covid crisis.
Earlier, Golam Mostafa Russel, deputy commissioner of DB Tejgaon division along with another additional deputy commissioner and assistant commissioner went to the DGHS office to quiz the DG and ADG on Wednesday afternoon.
Mahbub Alam, joint commissioner of DMP Detective Branch told the Business Standard that they got some credible information about the scam from the prime accused.
"So, we need to quiz them on whether that information is authentic or not," he added.
DB police is going to submit a charge-sheet to the court in a case lodged over the JKG Healthcare's Covid-19 test scam within a week.
The investigators claimed to have found credible evidence against JKG's Chairman Dr Sabrina Arif Chowdhury and Chief Executive Officer Ariful Haque Chowdhury over their involvement in the scam.
JKG Healthcare run by Dr Sabrina and her husband Ariful Haque Chowdhury was realising money from 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.
The Anti-Corruption Commission is also probing Dr Sabrina's illegal wealth.
