When 34-year-old Vikas Lokhande for­got his bag con­tain­ing a lap­top, a mo­bile phone and sil­ver coins in an au­torick­shaw, he thought he would never find it.

A few hours later, his build­ing se­cu­rity guard told him to con­tact the auto driver who had left his au­torick­shaw num­ber with him. Lokhande works with Am­buja Ce­ment and lives in Brah­mand.

On Mon­day evening, he took an auto from Thane rail­way sta­tion to go home. Af­ter get­ting down out­side his build­ing, he re­al­ized that he had left his bag be­hind in the au­torick­shaw.

By then, the auto had left and he did not know the auto num­ber.

“Af­ter some time, auto driver Shakil Shaw saw the bag in his au­torick­shaw. He re­turned to the build­ing. He left his auto num­ber with the se­cu­rity guard, who in­formed Lokhande about the bag. When Lokhande came down, the guard gave him the au­torick- shaw num­ber,” said Dnay­nesh Shir­sat, traf­fic po­lice con­sta­ble.

Lokhande first con­tacted the traf­fic po­lice and gave them the auto num­ber. “We searched and found out the auto driver’s ad­dress. The driver lives at Wa­gale Es­tate and he was happy to hand over the bag to the owner,” said Shir­sat.

Lokhande wouldn’t have been hap­pier. “Thanks to the auto driver and the Thane po­lice, I got back my bag which had a lap­top, a mo­bile phone and sil­ver coins worth Rs52,000,” Lokhande.
