Mobile financial service provider bKash has honored an auto-rickshaw driver Sajib on Wednesday.

A passenger left a bag with Tk 61 lakh cash in a battery-run auto-rickshaw in Chandpur. The auto-rickshaw driver Sajib set a rare example of honesty by returning the money to the owner.

To recognize such an act of morality, country’s leading MFS provider bKash has honored Sajib, said a press release.

A cheque of Tk 50,000 was handed over to Sajib at the head office of bKash in capital on Wednesday.

bKash took the initiative last year to recognise his honesty, but due to pandemic, could finally hand over the reward officially now.

Last year, a bKash agent withdrew an amount of Tk 61 lakh from a bank in Chandpur Sadar. Mistakenly the agent left the money in the auto-rickshaw of Sajib.

After getting the money, Sajib waited a while there and returned to home. Later, he shared the matter with his brother-in-law Abul Kashem.

The duo discussed the matter and called the Officer-in-Charge of Chandpur Model Thana immediately. With the help of police, the money was then handed over to the rightful owner. The honesty of Sajib also went viral in social media.
