Dr Abul Kalam Azad, former Director General of Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), has claimed himself a sincere, skilled and successful officer.

“I’ve worked my entire life as a hard worker, sincere, honest, skilled, successful and meritorious officer,” Dr Azad told journalists while coming out of the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) office after being quizzed on Wednesday.

The anti-graft body quizzed from 10am to 3pm over the graft relating to coronavirus test.

“The ACC is investigating an allegation over purchasing health gears by the CMSD. The ACC officials requested me to inform about what I know in this regard. I’ve informed them elaborately about what I’ve known,” he said.


Demanding punishment to those involved in the graft, the former health DG also said,” I demand strict action against the perpetrators. I’ll extend all-out cooperation in the investigation.”
