On July 06, a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) employee retuned a packet of gold items to a passenger, who left it at the Peshawar airport lounge, setting an example of honesty.
According to details, a passenger identified as Bin Yamin, reached Bacha Khan International Airport, Peshawar, via Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight from Sharjah.
He left one of his packets at the lounge of the airport, which came into the notice of a CAA supervisor Hameed Rashid who was on patrolling duty at the time.
The CAA employee opened up the packet before two other ASF personnel and found out gold items including a gold ring, earrings, and a locket.
The items were handed over to a duty officer, who traced the passenger using CCTV footage at the Peshawar airport. The passenger was approached and later handed over the valuables after a proper verification process.
The passenger lauded the CAA official and other airport staffers for returning his valuables.
