An Indian expat working at the Abu Dhabi-based hypermarket chain Lulu stands accused of disappearing with approximately Dh600,000 in cash.

Lulu Group International has taken action by filing a complaint with the Abu Dhabi Police against the employee. The individual, aged 38 and originally from the Indian state of Kerala, held a position in the cash office at the LuLu Hypermarket located in Khalidiya Mall, Abu Dhabi City.

The management of the hypermarket launched an internal investigation after the employee failed to report for afternoon duty on March 25. Attempts to contact him proved unsuccessful as his cell phone was switched off. An audit later revealed a significant shortfall of over Dh600,000 in the cash office.

Having served with the Lulu Group for 15 years, the employee resided in Abu Dhabi with his wife and two children. However, following his alleged disappearance, his family reportedly left the UAE without informing anyone, as per the group's statement.

Furthermore, Lulu Group stated that a report has been made against the employee to the Kerala Police, with help from the Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi.
