State Trading Organization (STO) head office was broken into and robbed during the early hours of Tuesday (March 18).
STO Managing Director Adam Azim informed local media that a group of people had threatened the office’s security guard with knives and forced their way into the offices.
“They were not able to go up to the main safe. I don’t think they would have been able to steal any money, as we have a practice of depositing our earnings every day,” he is quoted as saying.
However, he stated that there might have been an unidentified amount of money in the office intended for use as petty cash, which might have been stolen.
A police media official confirmed that they are investigating a break in at STO headquarters, while stating that the amount of money stolen is as of yet unknown.
No related arrests have been made at the time of press.
