E-rickshaw driver returns bag with valuables to passenger

DANG: An e-rickshaw driver honestly returned a lost bag, including Rs 50,000 cash, to its rightful owner.

Pushpa Shrestha, a resident of Beluwa, Tulsipur-9 in the district, had found Sita Acharya's bag containing jewellery, cash, few important documents and medicines among others, on her vehicle.

The bag was handed over to Acharya amid a programme organised here today to honour the honest, responsible lady Shrestha.

Acharya, who was going to Tulsipur on Sunday, had travelled in Shrestha's rickshaw.

"I can relate to Acharya's pain of losing her valuables. Hence, as soon as I found the lost bag, I made an effort to return it," the auto rickshaw rider confided. "Honesty is an important human virtue," she added.

Acharya, who was apparently elated to receive her lost bag, expressed her gratitude to Shrestha for her good deed.
