Mobile financial services (MFS) provider bKash has honoured Sajib, an auto-rickshaw driver, who set a rare example of honesty.

A passenger left a bag with Tk 61 lakh cash in the auto-rickshaw in Chandpur. Sajib set the instance of honesty by returning the money to the owner.

A cheque of Tk 50,000 was handed over to Sajib at the Head Office of bKash in capital on Wednesday, said a press release.

bKash took the initiative last year to recognise his honesty, but due to the coronavirus pandemic it delayed.

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.

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