Earlier in the day, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) arrested Dr Sabrina Arif Chowdhury, the chairman of JKG Health Care over fake Covid-19 test result scam.
She was summoned to the police station for quizzing initially in the morning and later in afternoon, she was shown arrested in the case after the interrogation.
Jobeda Khatun General - JKG Health Care, a sister concern of Oval Group, came into discussion when police, on June 23, detained five people in the capital for their alleged involvement in providing Covid-19 test certificates without testing samples.
Later on June 24, the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) revoked the permission that allowed JKG Health Care to collect Covid-19 samples, set up sample collection centres and provide training.
The DGHS in this regard issued a circular, signed by its Additional Director General Professor Dr Nasima Sultana.
