Foreign Exchange branch manager Bharat Ram was in for a rude shock when he arrived at work in Lautoka last Saturday morning.

The front window glass of the company’s Lautoka outlet was damaged.

With nothing stolen from the premises, Mr Ram reported the matter to the Police, but added that he suspected it was the work of vandals.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the matter was being investigated.

“It was a horrific scene to see shattered glass in front of the office when opening the office in the morning for business,” Mr Ram said.

“While arriving at the scene, Police officers on patrol had the place covered in keeping the public away from broken glass on the ground.”

He said this damage was estimated at about $3000.

Mr Ram said the company would have to take precautions with extra security.

“The authorities are doing their part, but just someone who probably had some issues showed their anger on my branch office.”

He said the area was well known for drunks roaming about.

Ms Naisoro confirmed the report and said it was believed that someone who was drunk threw a brick and broke the glass.
