Head Constable at the Mumbai Central railway station found a bag containing Rs. 8 lakh and returned it to its owner.
Rameshchand Meena (48) who works for the RPF (Railway Protection Force) when he was doing a routine check of the Rajdhani Express which arrived from New Delhi at 8:15am.
He spotted an abandoned bag on the upper berth and took the bag to the Lost Parcel Office, after which an Inspector asked Railway staff to keep a watch for anyone inquiring about it. The personnel then returned the bag to its owner – 35-year-old Mohammed Ikram.
A relieved and grateful Ikram said, “The money was pooled in by us four brother to buy supplies that would last for six months. Our business would have been hugely set back. It is only due to the honesty of the RPF head constable that I could get the bag back. This has restored my faith in police.”
Meena was awarded Rs. 1000 as cash prize for his honesty by the Divisional Railway Manager Mukul Jain of Western Railway.
A true hero! Respect!
