The theft of Tk 256,000 from the “Hat Gurudaspur” post office in Gurudaspur municipal headquarters of Natore has taken place. The incident took place on the night of January 26 (Wednesday).
According to post office sources, CSO named Keya Khatun (30), a representative of Bank Asia at the post office, deposited money in the drawer of her own office room. Although he was supposed to deposit the daily accumulated money to the postmaster, he did not submit any yesterday. Later on Thursday morning, during office hours, he went to his room and found a broken drawer and no hard disk of CCTV camera. He later informed the staff including the postmaster.
CSO Keya Khatun, a representative of Bank Asia, said Agrani Bank had deposited Tk 16 lakh at the Chanchkere branch on Wednesday. The remaining 2 lakh 56 thousand rupees is left for office expenses and locked in a drawer for the needs of the customer. He came on Thursday morning and saw that there was no money.
The post office night watchman said he was on duty till 2 am. He later locked himself in the office and fell asleep. No people entered at night and no vandalism took place.
Postmaster Md. Mizanur Rahman said, “Every day at the end of the day we deposit our savings in Gurudaspur police station. Bank Asia works closely with us. For this I ask the representative of Bank Asia if they have money. They said there was no money. We also did not go to the police station because we did not have cash. But in the morning I heard that money had been stolen from the room of the representative of Bank Asia.
Gurudaspur Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mohammad Abdul Matin said the investigation is underway. Necessary steps will be taken after investigation. # Md. Majem Ali Malin
