A 21-year-old Swedish na­tional was robbed of his bag while he was trav­el­ling from Kar­nataka to Mum­bai on Sun­day. The for­eign na­tional iden­ti­fied as Grim Ralf Bergmann, a res­i­dent of Sundsvall in Swe­den, was on a six-month trip to In­dia and had boarded a long-dis­tance train from Kar­war in Kar­nataka on March 4.

When he got down in Mum­bai, Bergmann fig­ured that his bag­gage, which had his mo­bile phone, pass­port, visa, doc­u­ments, clothes and Rs26,000 was miss­ing. The Swedish na­tional pan­icked and he was di­rected to a beat chowky of Kurla po­lice sta­tion. But Bergmann lost his way near the sta­tion area, and in panic, started weep­ing. A con­sta­ble who saw Bergmann took him to the beat chowky of Kurla po­lice sta­tion.

Bergmann could not rec­ol­lect the train he trav­elled in, but told po­lice of­fi­cers that af­ter he boarded the train he kept his big­ger bag below the seat, and used his smaller hand bag as a head­rest.
