Karachi : Pakistani cop gets Rs 100 million in account, bank blocks his ATM card

A police officer in Pakistan’s Karachi became a crorepati overnight when, along with his salary, his bank account was credited with Rs 100 million from an “unknown source”.

For most of us, finding 50 or 100 bucks in some forgotten pant pocket or handbag can be an instant mood-lifter. Now, imagine the surprise and elation of a Pakistani police officer who suddenly discovered Rs 100 million in his bank account.

Aamir Gopang, an investigating officer at a police station in Pakistan’s Karachi, became a crorepati overnight when, along with his salary, his bank account was credited with Rs 100 million (10 crore) from an “unknown source”.

“I was shocked because let alone having seen so much money, I have never had more than a few thousand rupees in my account,” Gopang said, as quoted by news agency PTI.

The police officer claims he only got to know about his windfall when he got a call from the bank and was informed that Rs 100 million had been deposited into his account.

However, before he could do anything about it, the bank froze Gopang’s account and blocked his ATM card to prevent him from withdrawing money. An investigation has been launched to find out how and where from the massive sum ended up in the Karachi cop’s account.

In similar incidents in Pakistan’s Larkana and Sukkur, other police officials also received large sums of money in their bank accounts, reported PTI.

In Larkana, three police officers found out each of them had got 50 million rupees in their accounts while in Sukkur, a police officer had the same amount in his account.
