A court took into cognizance the charge-sheet filed in an arms case lodged against Regent Hospital Chairman Md Shahed, who was arrested on the charge of issuing fake coronavirus certificates. 

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Kayes passed the order on Wednesday. The court also set August 27 to hold a hearing on charge framing. 

Additional public prosecutor of the court Tapash Kumar Paul told the information to media. 

Earlier on July 30, Investigation officer (IO) and DB inspector Md Shairul filed the charge-sheet at the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Morshed Al Mamun Bhuiyan. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Court on August 13 transferred the case to Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Court for further proceedings. 

It has been noted that Shahed was arrested by RAB from Shatkhira's border area on July 15 and was airlifted to the capital in the morning.
