Expired medicines recovered from septic tank

Huge date-expired medicines have been recovered from a septic tank at Ujanchar Sub-Health Centre in Goalanda Upazila in Rajbari.

Saddam Hossain, a local youth, said he went to the backyard of the health center in search of honeycomb on Monday and found scattered medicines near the septic tank.

Locals then recovered the medicines packed in cartoons.

Expressing anger over the incident, Salahuddin Mridha, a local resident, said the health center always refuses to provide medicines to patients.

Last year, they dumped two sacks of medicines angering locals, he alleged.

Asif Mahmud, Upazila health and family planning officer, said they have issued a show-cause notice against sub-assistant community medical officer of the health center Mokhlesur Rahman.

Upazila Nirbahi Officer Rubayet Hayat Shiplu said a three-member body has been formed to probe the incident.
