bKash honors auto driver Sajib’s honesty

October 27, 2021 Dhaka

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.


A cheque of Tk 50,000 was handed over to Sajib at the Head Office of bKash in the capital today (Wednesday). bKash took the initiative last year to recognize his honesty, but due to the 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 finding the money, Sajib waited a while there, and then returned to home. Later, he shared the matter with his mother and brother-in-law Abul Kashem. His mother advised to return the money to the owner.


Sajib and his brother-in-law 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 story of Sajib’s honesty also went viral in social media.


Sajib, who lives in Puran Bazar area of Chandpur Sadar, said, “I am delighted to get this honor. I have a dream of doing something on my own. The reward will help me fulfill my dream”.
