A team of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has found expired medicines which are at least 11 years old during a raid on Shahabuddin Medical College Hospital at Gulshan in the capital.
The raid was carried out primarily over irregularities in Covid-19 testing, RAB Executive Magistrate Sarwoer Alam told The Business Standard.
The elite force has also detained two people, including an assistant director of the hospital.
They are now checking the operation theatre of the hospital.
The hospital was reportedly testing Covid-19 samples with rapid test kits which, according to the Directorate General of Drug Administration, cannot be used for diagnosis
