Conspiracy? Who owns the Rs 30 Million Found in Pakistan’s Crashed Plane?

The Pakistan International Airlines Flight PK-8303 from Lahore to Karachi’s ill-fated crash that killed 97 people, including 9 children, was investigated and 30 Million Rupees have been found in the wreckage. 47 bodies have been identified and 43 have been handed over for burial. Only two people survived the crash, which was a miracle in itself considering the extent of damage that was caused.

The flight crashed near the Karachi International airport, in a residential area. Investigators and rescue officials have found currencies of different countries and denominations worth around Rs 30 million from the aircraft’s wreckage, as was reported by an official on Thursday. The money was found in two bags in the wreckage. 

“An investigation has been ordered into how such a huge amount of cash got through airport security and baggage scanners and found its way into the ill-fated flight,” said an official on 28th May. The official also stated that the body identification process is going on. Their bodies and luggage will be handed over to their respected families.

The Pakistan International Airlines Flight PK-8303 from Lahore to Karachi’s ill-fated crash was the first major aircraft crash in Pakistan after December 7, 2016 when a PIA ATR-42 aircraft from Chitral to Islamabad crashed midway. 48 people died in the crash, which included the crew and singer-cum-evangelist Junaid Jamshed.

Pakistan has been suffering economically since many years. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has been requesting countries around the world to help them deal with the economic crisis. The country has been requesting International organisations for bail out. Moreover, the COVID19 crisis have hit the nation badly. In such difficult time, a plane crash in the heart of Karachi added to the miseries of Pakistan. However, a question arises, how such a huge amount of cash was being flown in an airplane. Did the airport staff failed to check the baggage or was the staff also involved in movement of Rs 30 million in an airplane. How the investigation will proceed it is for time to tell but Pakistan will have many questions to answer to their citizens.
