Honesty pays off. A salesman in Surat would have never imagined that returning a bag full of money could bring prosperity to his family.
Dilip Poddar, who works as a salesman at a saree showroom in Umra locality finds a bag lying unattended roadside on Friday when he was returning to the duty after lunch. He opened the bag couldn’t believe he saw. The bag was full of money. The bag has ₹2000 notes total of 10 lakh police informed.
Instead of pocketing the money, the salesman informed his manager, who advised him to keep the money with him until the owner of the bag is traced.
As the police were informed, they started to look into the CCTV footage to trace the owner of the bag. Once the owner was traced police approached Poddar who handed them the money. Gadhvi said the money was finally returned to its owner, who requested not to publish his name. He gifted ₹1 lakh to Poddar for his honesty.
Additionally, a jeweller, Hriday Pachchigar, also gave Rs one lakh from his pocket to Poddar at Umra police station, saying the money that was returned to the owner was used to purchase jewellery from his shop, Gadhvi added.
