Cab driver returns valuables worth Rs 2.5 lakh to a passenger, let’s praise him

Taking other’s objects or property without their permission is called ‘Stealing’. In today’s world, we are hearing a lot of stories that a thief stole gold, money, bike, phone etc. But get ready to read a whole new story now. Bengaluru cabdriver proved that he is a man of integrity.

A man took to Facebook to share a heartwarming story about a cab driver.

A passenger by the name of Sayuj Ravindran forgot expensive valuables worth Rs 2.5 lakh in a cab. After the cabbie spotted such valuables, he didn’t do what everyone probably imagined he would. He set an example of honesty by returning it to the owner.

“Returning after my cousins wedding, I took an Ola cab (with my family) from KR Puram railway station to home at around 3:30 am. Halfway down, the car tyre got punctured. The driver requested me to book another cab since it will take some time for him to replace the tyre. I got another one in 10 mins and I was about to reach home when I got a call from the first cab driver informing that I left a handbag in the car. I then realized it was my laptop bag which also had some valuables in it.

He said he will wait for me right there. I took my car from home and rushed back. He was kind enough to come a little further towards my home. We met at the Marathahalli bridge and he gave me the laptop bag,” Sayuj wrote.

The cabbie straightaway said ‘No’ as he refused to take the money for his samaritarian gesture.

“Meet Mr Khateeb UR Rahman, who returned my bag (with stuff worth Rs 2.5 lakhs approx). He refused to take any money from me in return of the favour and got back into his cab. But I did manage to slip in the money to his jacket pocket forcefully. Please reward this gentleman for what he has done.

The RT Nagar Old office (SGP Group), came across the selfless act of the Khateeb and UR Rahman rewarded him with a cheque of Rs 25,000,” the passenger wrote.
