Social media users in Kuwait are buzzing about a Bengali cleaner who worked as a doctor at the ministry of health using forged papers and by impersonating a Kuwaiti doctor who left the country in 1982.
The news surfaced when Kuwaiti lawyer Hani Hussein tweeted that in the next few days “a Kuwaiti doctor who’s a fraud and who’s actually Bengali and who works at al-Sabah Hospital will be arrested.”
According to Hussein, the counterfeiter Bengali managed to pass several medical tenders which got him promoted at the ministry.
The Bengali’s real identity was exposed when a Bengali worker who works at his office overheard him talk on the phone in fluent Bengali and mention his intentions to run for parliament in Bangladesh by using the money he saved while working at the health ministry in Kuwait.
However Kuwaiti MP Adel Al-Damkhi said to Al -Qabas that the Bangladeshi doctor’s story is fabricated.
Al-Damkhi added that he contacted the Health Ministry, which confirmed that the story was baseless.
