Luggage thefts at Quaid e Azam International.
Our biggest worry during air travel (after plane crashing and hijacking i mean), is that of our luggage being stolen. Someone rummaging though our belongings and taking things that may be precious to us, not in just the monetary but emotional sense as well, causes us to cringe at the mere idea.
Sadly this happens in most airports although the theft rate usually varies and Quaid e Azam International Airport is no different. Lately, there has been a rise in the number of thefts happening, or maybe its just coming to my attention now. In the past couple of months I’ve heard several incidents regarding family, friends and acquaintances where things went missing from their luggage and the theft wasn’t discovered till the concerned traveler was unpacking as the locks and the baggage strappings were in place when the luggage arrived on the conveyor belt.
Luggage items from perfumes to decorative ornaments to … books (now this struck as odd) have gone missing. This got me wondering; how many of us have been victims of luggage theft?
