City SP Sayed Aziz said that the woman stole the money and then passed it on to the gang members. The police have recovered around Rs20 million of the stolen money.

    Always get cnic copy telephone number of immediate family don’t let more than 1 person to do the job sometimes they bring along children or other young relatives just to distract you don’t leave them home alone to do the cleaning while you are out above all invest in a cctv which can record and can be accessed via mobile link worth soending money on this gadget dont employ relatives of other servants working for you already as this forms a nexus you are putting all your eggs in one basket.
