Hasina Begum has been cheating for long by forging the signatures of the government policy makers including the Prime Minister, the OC added.
It has been learnt that Hasina Begum introduced herself as the chef of Gonobhaban and met the Vice-Chancellor of the university, and talked to him over telephone also. – Special Correspondent
