A court here on Wednesday sent the field director of Bogura Christian Mission Hospital and the former accountant of the hospital to jail after rejecting their bail prayers in a graft case.
The accused are Riva Uttam Dewan, field director of the hospital, and its former accountant Protap Khandakar Dulal.
Bogura Chief Judicial Magistrate Md Rabiul Awal passed the order when the duo surrendered before his court, said Public Prosecutor (PP) Abdul Motin.
On July 3 in 2018, John Augustine Biswas, secretary of managing committee of the hospital, filed the case with the Senior Judicial Magistrate’s Court in Bogura, said the PP.
According to the case statement, the two embezzled Tk 64,21,800 from the hospital’s fund during 2015 to 2016.
The hospital is a non-governmental organisation funded by the Church of God General Conference of the United States of America, said John Augustine.
