For the last one and a half month, the police have been working on a special case – the case of the missing bananas.
On May 14, the Artillery Maiden police station received an application which claimed that 49 dozen bananas went missing from the storeroom of Pearl Continental Hotel. The application was submitted by the hotel’s assistant chief security officer, who informed the police that they had received nearly 100 dozen bananas and took them to the storeroom after the inventory.
According to the hotel’s security officer, there were only 51 dozen bananas in the storeroom when they went to check later. The hotel management decided to contact the police after they searched hotel from top to bottom. According to the police, the hotel managements suspected that the bananas were stolen. ASP Usman Bajwa said that the police had obtained the footages of the CCTV cameras but had found nothing substantial yet. He suspects that it was an inside job and said that an investigation was being carried out.
