A shocking incident took place at Shamshabad airport where security personnel stole Riyals (Saudi Arabia currency) from a passenger's forgotten bag. Sheikh Altafuddin from Nizamabad Dichpally arrived at Shamshabad Airport from Riyadh on Friday night. Altafuddin was in a rush as relatives and family members headed towards the departure rather than into the arrivals.
Since the staff indicated that the car parking time was running out, he rushed out leaving his bag behind. After going home, he realized the bag missing and went to Shamshabad airport. A complaint was lodged with the police saying that the bag contained electronic devices and 3050 riyals. The security personnel who took the bag returned it but there were only 500 riyals in it.
When he pressurized them, the security personnel returned another six hundred Riyals. But denies knowing anything about the remaining riyals. RGIA CI Srinivas said the complaint was received from the victim and they are investigating the matter. A complaint has been filed with the airport authorities as well about the missing currency.
