A vested quarter has grabbed Central Hospital and Central University of Science and Technology – both founded by late national professor Dr MR Khan – alleged his only daughter, Canadian expatriate Dr Mandy Karim.
"I have been deprived of the possession of my inherited property," she said at a press conference at the Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) on Wednesday.
Mandy Karim complained that Dr MR Khan – a prominent pediatrician of the country – had 53,000 shares in Central Hospital and she had 9,000 shares, but now she is not allowed to enter the hospital and is intimidated.
She further alleged that she was not even given a chance to take possession of her inherited land in Satkhira.
Mandy Karim said her cousin Ikram Kabir Khan threatened to kill her when she demanded her father's property and she was even forced out of the country.
"I have been by my father's side since he was in the ICU of Central Hospital," she said.
"From then on, Gazi Abdus Salam, who was by my father's side, conspired to usurp the ownership of all the properties and trustees. At that time, he took Tk4 crore from my father through forging signatures," she added.
"Gazi Salam conspired to make members of the trustee from his family and even though he was not a professor, he identified himself as a professor and became the chairman of the trustee board," she continued.
"When my father was in the ICU, Gazi Salam removed my father's name from the list of several resolutions, documents and board of trustees of the university," she said, adding that Salam did this by forging the signatures of Dr MR Khan and other members of the Board of Trustees.
