Health Desk- August 27, 2020: A Dhaka court on Wednesday sent Abzal Hossain, a suspended accountant of the medical education department under the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), to jail in connection with two separate money laundering cases filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of the Senior Special Judge's Court of Dhaka passed the order after Abzal surrendered before it seeking bail in the cases.
