A 54-year-old auto driver plying on the Budge Budge-Mollar gate, Maheshtala route set an example for others by returning a bag containing gold ornaments worth lakhs and cash to a woman. Sumaiya Bibi had left the bag on Saturday while alighting from the auto in a hurry due to heavy rain. The driver, Abdul Samad Mondal, noticed the bag lying on the back seat while parking the auto near my house at Pokpari in Budge Budge. He deposited the bag to Budge Budge police station with the help of a local panchayat member on Sunday morning. He got Rs 500 as a reward.
“It was raining heavily and I got off and rushed for shade to a roadside shop. I left my bag that contained four gold rings, a gold necklace, two gold ear rings and some cash,” said the woman who had lodged a general diary with Maheshtala police station on Saturday night. All the nearby police stations were informed about the missing bag. Bibi had boarded the auto from Nungi station in Maheshtala. “I was not sure who had left the bag. I went till Mollar Gate again, hanging the bag on my shoulder to find its owner. Next morning I gave it to cops,” said Mondal.
