In yet another major international level embarassment for the Pakistanis, the country’s senior bureaucrat was caught on camera stealing wallet of a Kuwaiti delegate.
The incident is when Pakistani delegation was on a two-day visit for Pakistan-Kuwait Joint Ministerial Commission meet.
The officer caught in the act has been identified as Investment and Facilitation Joint Secretary Zarar Haider Khan.
Khan was caught on CCTV stealing the wallet of the Kuwaiti delegate after the latter complained that he lost his wallet.
“All officers of the Ministry of Industries and Economics Affairs Division, as well as other participants, were shocked when the head of the Kuwaiti mission complained about the incident,” said an official of the finance ministry as reported in local media outlets.
“This is a very unfortunate development that has brought a bad name to the country as well as the officers working here,” he added.
Khan was arrested and legal proceedings have begun against him, it was said.>
