Mugda hospital director made OSD over mask scam


The government has moved against Dr Shahid Md Sadiqul Islam, the director of Dhaka Mugda Medical College Hospital, by removing him from active duty amid the controversy surrounding the quality of masks the hospital received from the Central Medical Stores Depot (CMSD) to combat the coronavirus crisis.

Sadiqul has been made an officer on special duty (OSD) even though his tenure at the hospital had seven months left to run, reports FT.

“I received an OSD letter on Apr 29. For now, I have been transferred to the health directorate,” Sadiqul told FT.

Md Habibur Rahman Khan, additional secretary (administration) of the Health Services division, could not be reached for comment.
Meanwhile, in another order dated April 26, acting principal of Mugda hospital Dr Shah Golam Nabi was handed the director’s responsibilities in addition to his present role.
