LAHORE: Setting an example of honesty, Motorway Police on Tuesday safely returned a woman’s jewellery worth Rs400,000 to its owner which she had left in a bus.

The Motorway Police spokesperson said the family travelling from Karachi to Lahore had accidently left the expensive jewellery in the bus.

As per details, the family informed helpline 130 that their jewellery had been missing. 

Upon this, patrolling officers Imran and Umar found the jewellery in the bus near Samundri city, in Faisalabad district, the spokesperson said.

The official said they contacted the family and returned the jewellery bag to them. 

If you are lucky, you may find your lost valuable items back though it doesn’t happen frequently. 

In a similar incident in August 2023, Karachi police recovered lost gold jewellery worth Rs4 million and safely returned it to the owner. 

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Malir Hasan Sardar Niazi said a female passenger, Saira Mustafa Sheikh, arrived in Karachi from Islamabad on a flight. 

The SSP said, upon reaching home, she noticed one of her bags was missing — which she recalled she had forgotten to pick up from the luggage trolley in the parking area of the airport.

The woman had then filed a complaint with the Airport Police Station in which she said that the missing bag contained jewellery worth Rs4 million, Rs40,000 in cash, various bank cards, and some documents.
