A cheque of Tk 50,000 was handed over to Sajib at the head office of bKash in the capital
A passenger left a bag with Tk61 lakh cash in a battery-run auto-rickshaw in Chandpur.
The auto-rickshaw driver Sajib has set a rare example of honesty by returning the money to the owner and to recognize such an act of morality, the country’s leading MFS provider bKash has honoured Sajib.
A cheque of Tk 50,000 was handed over to Sajib at the head office of bKash in the capital on Wednesday, according to a press release.
bKash took the initiative last year to recognize his honesty, but due to the pandemic, could finally hand over the reward officially now.
Last year, a bKash agent withdrew an amount of Tk61 lakh from a bank in Chandpur Sadar. Mistakenly the agent left the money in Sajib’s auto-rickshaw.
After finding the money, Sajib waited a while there, and then returned home and later, he shared the matter with his mother and brother-in-law Abul Kashem, upon which his mother advised him to return the money to the owner.
Sajib and his brother-in-law discussed the matter and called the officer-in-charge of Chandpur Model Thana immediately.
With the help of the police, the money was then handed over to the rightful owner.
The story of Sajib’shonesty also went viral on social media.
Sajib, who lives in the Puran Bazar area of Chandpur Sadar, said: “I am delighted to get this honour. I have a dream of doing something on my own. The reward will help me fulfil my dream”.
