Lankan labourer to be deported

A labourer accused of stealing BD 180 from his roommate claimed he sent the cash to his needy family. The Sri Lankan was convicted of theft and embezzlement by the High Criminal Court, which sentenced him yesterday to three years in jail.
The Judges ordered his immediate deportation after he completes his sentence.The defendant reportedly stole his roommate’s ATM card, which was lying on his bed, hid it in his clothes and snuck out of the accommodation they shared in Muharraq, in Bahrain.He withdrew cash using the pin number, which was written on the back of the card’s cover and headed towards a local bank, where he sent the cash to his family in Sri Lanka, in February.
