This wonderful news comes to us from Pune, Maharashtra, India.
The story goes back to the 20th of January this year when an auto rickshaw driver in Pune came with a bag of jewellery and garments worth Rs 7 lakhs to the Swargate police station. The bag was left behind in his rickshaw by a woman who got down at Apsara theatre that day in the evening at around 5 pm.
The bag was then handed over to the lady and the driver from Sasanenagar was honoured with accolades and applauds for his honesty. A function was held at the Swargate police station the very next day wherein the auto driver namely Tukaram Yadavrao Kale was feted for his noble deed.
The 55 year old woman namely Shobha Sandeep Lunkad hailing from Bibvewadi had purchased garments from a mall housed in Moledina Road. Shobha was accompanied by her daughter and the duo got up on Kale’s rickshaw in order to head back home. Shobha’s daughter decided to get down at Pulgate bus stand and in a hurry she handed over a bag of jewellery and the purchased garments to her mother.
As soon as the rickshaw reached Shankar Seth Road, Mrs Lunkad got down and asked the driver to end her trip outside a lane near Mira Cooperative housing society. She was paying her son a visit outside his office. She paid the rickshaw fare to Kale and moved on forgetting about the bag and the garments.
Soon after, Lunkad realised that her bag and garments went missing and she immediately headed to the Swargate police station and lodged a missing complaint. She mentioned that the bag had a diamond bracelet, earrings, and garments worth INR 7,03000.
The Senior inspector who is also in charge of the Swargate police station said, “A police team started checking CCTV cameras between Camp and Shankar Seth Road. We also started questioning auto rickshaw drivers plying on the route. Later, around 11pm, the driver Kale visited the police station and returned the bag with the ornaments and garments.”
Mrs. Lunkad who is a homemaker was elated on receiving the bag from the police authority. In her presence, the deputy commissioner and assistant commissioner of police honoured Kale for his honesty. People like Kale make the nation proud and if we have more human beings like him, the country will definitely be the best place to live on earth.
