A citizen on Wednesday claimed that his two kilograms of gold worth nearly Rs25 million has been stolen from the locker of a bank in DHA area of Karachi.

The police have launched an investigation into the incident and shared that a citizen claimed to have kept two kilograms of gold in the locker of a bank in Khayaban-e-Shahbaz area of the DHA.

“He kept the gold of his entire family in the locker,” they said, adding that the citizen lodged a complaint that when he checked the locker today, he found out nothing except a black shopping bag.

The police said that they have begun a probe and initially the locker will be scrutinized for any fingerprints. “A case will be registered and investigation department will begin a probe into the matter,” they said.

This is not the first time that incidents of material kept inside the lockers being stolen are reported and recently, staffers of a bank secretly replaced gold assets of citizens with ‘fake gold’ in the lockers.
