Sharjah: A taxi driver in Sharjah was honoured for returning a bag containing Dh1.7 million that was left behind by a passenger, the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said.
Nassiballah Sheer, a Pakistani driver working for a taxi company in Sharjah, found the medium-sized bag along with other important documents in his cab after they were left behind by a Korean businessman who had hailed Sheer’s cab from Sharjah International Airport.
Upon finding the bag, Sheer immediately headed to Sharjah’s RTA Taxi Office at the airport to hand over the bag. The office then contacted the airport police to look for the owner. Hours later, Sharjah Police located the Korean visitor and handed the bag along with the contents back to him.
Sheer was honoured by Abdulaziz Al Jarwan, Director of Sharjah RTA’s Transport Affairs, for his honesty and loyalty as a taxi driver. More info
