At present, everyone in the country, starting from social media, is now looking at the arrest of the fraudulent Shahid, the chairman of the Regent Group. Not only that but also several teams of RAB have launched operations in different parts of the country to catch the fraudster, Shahed.

According to the victims, when the creditors went to the chairman of Regent Group Mohammad Sahed to ask for money, they would be tortured in a torture cell. According to them, no one was spared from his torture cell, not even the elderly people.

Joynal Abedin, 65, used to supply sand to Shahid's company. Although he paid some money at the beginning, he still owes about Tk 15 lakh. He has been asking for this money for almost three years. He said that Shahed tortured him in a torture cell when he went to ask for money frequently.

The victim, Joynal Abedin, said he had been silent for so long in fear of further torture. Victims have begun to open their mouths after the Regent Hospital scam was exposed. Shahed used to swear in vulgar language whenever he asked for money. Again he used to torture him physically in his torture cell.

Meanwhile, there are more than 50 cases against him, including fraud in the name of treating coronavirus infected patients. Meanwhile, hundreds of such complaints against Sahed are being submitted to the police and RAB. However, Shahid has not been arrested yet.

Investigators are getting new information about Shahed by interrogating the remanded accused in the case of cheating in the name of treatment of patients suffering from coronavirus at Regent Hospital. Police say 23 more cases have been found lodged against Shahed in different police stations across the country. As such, Shahid is accused of at least 65 cases. Police confiscated his passport to resist him from escaping.

All the more sensational information is coming out against him in the search. Van drivers, police, businessmen and government officials; no one was not spared from the fraudulent Shahed. He has taken crores of takas from hundreds of such people in various ways. Many of the victims of Shahed's deception are now homeless. The trap of his deception is not only in the capital but all over the country.

Haji Samsul, a stone trader from Sylhet, was the victim of his deception. He owes Tk30 lakh from Shahid. He left home due to debt and came to Dhaka hotel.

Samsul Haque said Shahed destituted me. Under the pressure of bank loans, I am now homeless. I have come to Uttara West police station several times. But I could not even file a general diary (GD) against Sahid.

The fraudulent victim sand trader Yusuf Ali owes Tk 60 lakh from Shahid. "If I came to ask for money, he would take me to his torture cell and threaten to kill me," he said. “I have gone silent to save my life.”

According to the source, Shahid did not exclude anyone; from the van driver to the senior government officials, to cheat. He also took money from the police officer saying that he would be transferred. Many officers have been hanged using women. Shahed used to use the identity of the Prime Minister's Office more. He also used to pretend to be a major, colonel, media personality and political leader.

Meanwhile, the ACC has started searching for Shahed's illegal assets. A three-member team has already been formed.

Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Md. Benazir Ahmed said that all the police units are working to detain Shahed. The operation will continue until he is caught. The IGP said he must be arrested. All avenues of escape are closed. Passports have been confiscated and all entrances have been banned.
