HBL Branch in UAE Gets Robbed In Broad Daylight

Habib Bank Limited, one of the largest Pakistani banks globally, found itself as the target of a bank heist earlier today.

A branch of Habib Bank Limited in Sharjah, United Arab Emirated (UAE) was robbed during daylight today. Fortunately, no loss of lives has been reported so far.

Details of the Robbery

The police say that the branch, which is located on the busy Al Buhaira Road, got robbed at 11am this morning.

According to eye witness accounts, some 4 masked and heavily armed robbers entered the bank during the early morning hours. They went in holding their weapons and snatched the cash from one of the tellers at gun point.

After relieving the bank teller of the cash, the robbers immediately fled the scene.

Sharjah Police Gets Into Action

Sharjah Police, after receiving a call from the bank at about 11 am, immediately dispatched men towards the bank who then cordoned it off.

The police has begun its investigations by lifting fingerprints from the scene of the crime, reviewing CCTV camera footage and interrogating the staff at the bank. Given the highly unusual occurence of a bank heist in Sharjah, the police are confident that they will nab the culprits soon.

    Most probably an insurance fraud from some lovely Pakistanis. Lived over 10 years in the UAE, and never have heard of such robberies there.

      Really? Do you not read the newspapers or look at any of the local news channels?
      Infact outside the main cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, things are worse than Pakistan in rural areas, but since we have free media in Pakistan we find out, if even a mouse has farted in a village, but in Middle East you only get to find out those crimes which have massive witnesses, since there is no freedom of press.

      Perhaps you also did not hear of assassination of Palestinian leader in Dubai, or robberies that are mentioned in Gulf News or Khaleej Times? Dacoities of jewellery shops even in Dubai mall by eastern Europeans?

      Every day there are news items on robberies, decoities, murders and rapes — EVERY single day . . . which little bubble are you living in?

      • Arsalan Shah

        Better than your bubble. That Palestinian leader was assassinated by Israeli Mossad. And most of the things you say are just exaggerated, so and without any substantial proof from a single source. No point in being a keyboard warrior. I can type that I own the centaurus and my dad is the President of UAE. Won’t be true. If you’ve got something to say, be sure to provide sources.

        • Truth_Be_Told

          Really? Exaggerated? I am already giving you sources, and those are public as well, and its is you who are being a keyboard warrior, making false and fake without evidence or fact — I am challenging you to go to any days’ Khaleej Times or Gulf News or National — they are all online, so all you have to do, keyboard warrior, is type the name and google the website.
          I invite all readers, please do so, and read yourselves, and come back here and comment if I am correct or Mr. Arsalan, who seems to be living in a fools’ paradise, until he gets his termination letter on a one day notice to leave his fairyland. Such paid toadies will never tell the truth about the reality that is happening on the ground in Middle East.

          Let me tell you a reality, Arsalan, about Pakistani school girls kidnapped en-masse from Pakistani School in Jeddah in Azizia, and how the boys from the afternoon shift had to go and rescue them from the Saudi boys and recovered the poor Pakistani girls — people like you are a disgrace who hide all bad things happening there and lure poor Pakistanis to go and suffer immeasurably in the Middle East, even if they have great jobs in Pakistan.

          You have never seen LUMS and IBA graduates stand in 52 degrees heat selling credit cards on the streets — because you are blinded by the fake love of your own reality — neither can you see the pathan laborers who die in that same heat building tall towers as their bodies are buried in the same concrete to avoid the floor getting cracked if the filling is stopped.

          If only you went out of your air conditioned office and home to see the REAL world, but pity that people like you, the REAL keyboard warriors are as fake as the words you type, without any connection to what is happening to real Pakistanis on the real streets of the Middle East.
