PABBI: Unidentified armed robbers barged into the Pabbi post office, Nowshera, on Thursday and stole pensioners’ funds. Pabbi police SHO Ismail Shah told The Express Tribune that according to postmaster Sher Khan, two masked robbers entered the building at 8:30am and took Rs400,000 at gun point, before escaping on a motorbike. “An inquiry will be conducted because of contradictions in the statements of the postmaster” Shah added. An official at Pabbi police station told The Express Tribune that according to the postmaster claimed he was dividing the pension money when the robbers entered the building and took around Rs 30,000. However, while talking to journalists, Khan said that robbers just took an envelope and no money. On Wednesday evening, two unidentified robbers entered the Nadra office at Pabbi taking Rs800,000. Police have presumed that both the robberies were conducted by the same suspects.
