Melbourne, Oct 12 (ANI): Plane passengers in Papua New Guinea are reportedly being terrorised by a thief, who keeps nicking their knickers.
The victims, who are women travelling with the national carrier Air Niugini, suspect one or many baggage handlers of stealing their undergarments.our women have said their best undergarments were stolen from luggage when travelling on domestic flights leaving the capital Port Moresby, and one, who was on a brief stay in PNG, said her bag's lock was broken and the only item missing were g-strings and lace hipster briefs.
"I could not believe it. I was shocked, it's just too creepy," News.com.au quoted her as saying.
"I have travelled all around the world and this is the first time something like this has happened," she said.
Another woman visiting her mother in Lae, on PNG's northwest coast, discovered her pink panties were gone.
"What makes it weirder is that I had much more valuable items to steal than my underpants," she said.
Another woman said Air Niugini had asked for a statuary declaration and receipts as proof when offering compensation for the stolen items.
"I was in the Highlands, Mt Hagen, of all the places in PNG, and had to ask the police for a stat dec to claim payment from Air Niugini for the lost items," she said.
Air Niugini officials said they would get to the bottom of the issue.
"We have spoken with frontline staff about missing luggage or stolen items," a spokeswoman said.
Adding: "We are unaware of that particular item being targeted." (ANI)
