The Dubai Police authorities have recently returned a bag with a sum of Dh77,000 worth of money divided in various currencies to a transit passenger who had lost this amount of cash before leaving Dubai.

The Pakistani traveller did not realise initially that he had lost his bag until the Police contacted him to inform him. They assured him that his pack and valuables were in safe hands at the Lost & Found Section in the General Department of Airports Security at Dubai Police.


The Lost & Found office in the Airport’s Terminal 3 received the black-coloured bag from an honest taxi driver. The bag contained sums of money in various currencies: Dh1,020, 67,055 Saudi riyals, 2,000 British pounds, and 3,000 Pakistani rupees, along with some personal documents of the owner.

After they checked the contents of the bag to gather the owner’s contact information, Dubai Police authorities were able to establish contact with relatives of the owner in the United Kingdom. The latter provided the police officers with the owner’s contact number. The officers learned the passenger would transit via Dubai International Airport on his flight back to his homeland, Pakistan.

After the fact, The Dubai Police Authorities contacted and coordinated with Emirates Airlines and arranged the handover.

Because of the Taxi driver’s swift and honest actions, the Airport Authorities were able to return the valuables to the owner.

Brigadier Hamouda bin Suwayda Al Amiri, Acting Director of the General Department of Airports Security, praised the taxi driver for his honesty in handing the bag to the Police. He reiterated the Dubai Police’s enthusiasm for strengthening the community partnership concept and reinforcing the sense of responsibility among individuals.

This is just the latest display of community spirit from the public. In June, Tariq Mahmood, a resident of Dubai, was honoured for handing over Dh1 million that he discovered in a lift in his residential building.


He took the money to the local Al Barsha Police Station. Mahmood was given a certification of appreciation to commemorate his good deed at a ceremony held by Dubai Police.
