Bhadra Plaza is a crowded place to shop in Ahmedabad’s old city area and one advice that is given to every shopper is to take care of their belongings. So when Syed Muzaffar Ali, a resident of Juhapura, realised that he had lost his bag containing Rs 80,000, he had little hope to find it.Moreover, Ali realised that his bag was missing after an hour. “I had come to shop with my family. At one shop as I reached for the money, I realised that the bag was not with me. Initially, I thought I had left it back home, but then my family told me that they remember me taking the bag.” As soon as he realised that he had lost the bag, Ali got in touch with other members of his family for help to find the money, and they together started asking around.Upon trying to retrace Ali’s steps in an attempt to find the bag, they came across the street vendor who had found the missing bag. Meghal Bansilal had found the bag and when he was approached by Ali about the same, he asked him several questions about the particulars in the bag to make sure that he was indeed the owner. “I asked him about the amount he had lost and what else he had in the bag. I was a bit reluctant to hand over the money as I was afraid of giving it to the wrong person. But he gave all the right answers,” said the street vendor who found the bag with the money.Bansilal said he never thought of keeping the money. “It is a big sum and I know how hard a person works to earn money. Had he not come, I would have gone to the police station in the evening and handed it over to the cops,” he added. Bansilal revealed that his biggest fear was to give the bag to the wrong person. “That is why I asked him to come with me to Karanj Police station so that I could give him the money there,” said Bansilal.Karanj Police Inspector ML Odedara said they were following procedures after which the money will be handed over to Ali. He admits that Ali was one lucky guy to have got his money back. “It would have been very difficult to trace the money had this man not returned it. It is rare,” said Odedara.
