HC asks govt to shutdown 14 hospitals in capital

The High Court (HC) yesterday directed the government to immediately shut down 14 hospitals in Mohammadpur area of Dhaka as they have no valid license. In response to a writ petition, the HC bench of Justice Sheikh Hasan Arif and Justice Ahmed Sohel also issued a rule asking the government to explain why it should not be directed to remove the hospitals which are operating in the area any without valid licenses.

The HC bench also asked the government to explain why it should not be directed to take appropriate legal action against the persons responsible for operation of those hospitals running in the area without having any valid license.

The hospitals are: BDM Hospital and Diagnostic Centre, Shebika General Hospital, Jonosheba Nursing Home And Diagnostic Centre, Life Care Nursing Home, Royal Multispecialty Hospital Nawab Siraj ud-Daulah Manoshik and Madokashakto Hospital, Manmita Mental Hospital, Plazma Medical Service and Clinic, Shefa Hospital and Diagnostic Centre, Islamia Mental Hospital, Crescent Hospital and Diagnostic Complex, Mokka Median General Hospital and Diagnostic Centre, New Wellcare Hospital and Bangladesh Trauma Specialised Hospital.

Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh (HRPB), a human rights body, filed the petition with the HC seeking necessary order on the  government to shut down the hospitals as they have no valid required licenses.

Advocate Manzill Murshid, counsel for the petitioner, told reporters that they have filed the petition with the HC on September 9 following a newspaper report published in a national daily stating that hospitals were operating without having valid licenses.

“Running the hospitals without any valid license is totally illegal and punishable offence. We sought HC directives over the matter.

After hearing on the petition, the HC directed the director general of the health department and the director general of the Rapid Action Battalion to shut down 14 hospitals in Mohammadpur of Dhaka as they have no valid license,” Murshid added.
