Trial of Regent's Shahed, 2 others in fraud case begins

A court in Dhaka has framed charges against Regent Group chairman Md Shahed Karim and two others in a fraud case.

On Tuesday (January 18), Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikari framed the charges against the accused Shahed Karim and two others. At the same time, the court has fixed February 15 for testifying witnesses.

Two others accused are Regent Hospital managing director Masud Parvez and Regent KCS Limited general manager Shipon Ali.

With the framing of charges, trial of the accused has formally begun.

Earlier in the day, the accused were produced before the court. Then the state held a hearing on charge framing in the case.

On the other hand, Advocate Dabir Uddin, lawyer of the accused, submitted a prayer to the court to relieve the accused from the case claiming them as 'innocent.' After the hearing, the court passed an order for charge framing rejecting the prayer for relieving the accused.

According to the case documents, sand traders SM Shipon as per an agreement with Shahed Karim supplied sand worth Tk 61 lakh. Later, KCM Limited general manager Shipon Ali gave SM Shipon three cheques of Pubali Bank Limited to clear the payments, but the cheques were dishonored by the bank. When SM Shipon claimed the payment of his bills, the accused kept him waiting.

Later, on July 24, 2020, sand trader SM Shipon filed the fraudulent case with Uttara West Police Station.

Police submitted a charge sheet against them on November 8, 2020.
