Munia Khan Roza (25) became a gynecologist by buying an apron from Neelkhet area of the capital and a stethoscope from Mitford area for 550 rupees. Munya did not stop at becoming a doctor, he used to forge the director’s signature and make a fake ID card to visit the intensive care unit (ICU) of the Dhaka Medical College (DMH) hospital as a doctor.
The Ansar members in charge arrested Munia from the ICU of the new building of Dhamek Hospital at around 8:30 pm on Saturday. Munya initially claimed to be a doctor but later revealed the truth. He said that he is actually a fake doctor. Basically, his profession is taking patients to private hospitals.
Munya said that his house is in Hamanpaddi village of Chandpur Sadar. Munia, daughter of deceased Mohammad Karim Khan, currently lives in a rented accommodation on Nazim Uddin Road in Old Dhaka.
Munya said, ‘Brother, I said first out of fear – I am a doctor in the Gynecology Department of Dhaka Medical. But I realized my mistake. Actually I am not a doctor or involved in medical profession. I buy apron from Neelkhet for Rs.550 and stethoscope from Mitford area. I mainly take patients from Dhaka Medical to private hospitals. Apart from this, I entered the doctor’s room without wearing an apron and stole their mobiles and other belongings. Brother, I have made a mistake, please forgive me this time. I will never do this again in my life.’
PC Ujjal Bepari of Ansar members who is in charge of the security of the hospital said, ‘Ansar APC Zaman Uddin was in charge of the security of the ICU of the new building at the time of the incident. He told me over the radio that we have arrested a woman after watching the CCTV footage due to suspicious movements. The woman was wearing an apron. At that time, one of our doctors lost his mobile phone. Suspecting this, I went to the scene and brought the woman safely to the emergency department. A fake ID card bearing the signature of the director of Dhaka Medical was found from him. Later, we were in charge of the police camp at the hospital. Tell Bachchu Mia.’
When asked about this, the in-charge of police camp of Dhamek Hospital said. Bachchu Mia said that the accused fake female doctor has been kept in security custody under the guard of female Ansar members. I have reported the matter to the concerned police station. They will take action.
