His boss, Muhammad Ashraf, on his LinkedIn page wrote about how the young man found some wads of US dollars in one of the rooms he went to clean after the guest had checked out.

Immediately as he saw the money, the cleaner alerted the hotel management of the situation and the money was quickly deposited into the organisation's lost and found account.
