Detectives have pressed charges against Dr Sabrina Sharmin Hossain, Chairman of JKG Health Care, in a case filed against her for possessing two National ID cards with fake information.

Mohammad Ripon Uddin, a Sub-Inspector of Detective Branch (DB) and also the Investigation Officer (IO) of the case submitted the charge sheet to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court of Dhaka on December 1, court sources said today.

In the charge sheet, the IO said the charges brought against Dr Sabrina of possessing two National ID cards with fake information were primarily proven true and she should be brought under trial for this offence.

On August 30, 2020, Election Officer Abdul Momin Mia filled the case with Gulshan Police Station against Dr Sabrina.

According to the case statement and EC's NID Division, detained Dr Sabrina who was involved in Covid-19 test report forgery, became a voter for the first time in 2009.

At that time, she said her current and permanent address both are in Mohammadpur. She mentioned December 2, 1978 as her date of birth. She mentioned her husband's name as 'Haque'; and educational qualification as post-graduation.
