The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) has expressed disappointment and concern over the stolen dollars owned by Krishna Rani Sarkar and Shamsunnahar Sr. — two members of the SAFF Women’s Championship-winning team.
After the Bangladesh team landed in Dhaka from Kathmandu at 1:42 pm yesterday, they embarked on a nearly four-hour long journey from the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport to the Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) headquarters in Dhaka. Later in the night following a press conference at the BFF, Krishna and Shamsunnahar discovered their bags unlocked and money missing.
Mahfuza Akhter Kiran, head of the BFF women’s wing, said that the BFF took action quickly.
“Krishna Rani Sarkar and Shamsunnah Sr. had 900 and 400 dollars, respectively. It’s extremely disappointing. Such an event is totally unexpected. We are gravely concerned,” Kiran said.
