A team of CID went to the Ministry of Health at the Secretariat on Sunday morning and questioned six office assistants there over the incident, CID’s additional police super Azad Rahman told journalists.
A file containing 17 important documents has mysteriously gone missing from the ministry.
The files – mostly purchase documents – were stored at the office of Medical Education and Family Welfare Division at the Secretariat.
The missing files include multiple documents related to purchases for Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmad Medical College, Rajshahi Medical College and other medical colleges, vehicle allocation and purchase-related documents for training schools, data on cervical and breast cancer screening programme, documents on Health Directorate purchases, and project files under the Bureau of Health Education.
The incident came to the spotlight on Saturday, two days after a general diary (GD) was filed with Shahbagh police station over the incident.
