A South Kashmir resident Friday alleged that Post Office employees stole his valuable ring that he had sent through a parcel to one of his friend in Madhya Pradesh.
Muhammad Maqbool Naikoo resident of Bongam Shopian told CNS that he sent a parcel vide invoice number 9172/N through post office Shopian to Bhopal Madhya Pradesh on August 13 this month.
“The parcel contained a valuable ring worth Rs 14,500 for which I received a proper receipt vide number 870813935. I was shocked when my shopkeeper friend from Bhopal informed me on phone that he refused to collect the parcel from the postman there as he found it torn,” he said.
Naikoo said that his friend who is the proprietor of Ratna House did not collect his parcel and accordingly the parcel was dispatched back to Post Office Shopian.
“The post office Shopian employees are insisting me to collect this parcel that is without the ring. How can I collect it when they have cheated me,” he asked adding that he has lost faith in the system and has pledged never to show up at any post office.
Chief Post Master General J&K Circle, Chander Prakash admitted that the ring in the parcel has gone missing. “We will conduct an enquiry and have conveyed to the customer to file a complaint in the office of Senior Superintendent Post Office at GPO Srinagar,” he said.
