Bhubaneswar, May 14 (LocalWire): A 55-year-old man thought he had lost his wallet containing Rs 8,000 in cash, pan and debit cards until a good Samaritan helped him get back his valuable possession.
Suresh Nayak had lost the wallet during a visit to the regional transport office here.
“I realized my wallet was missing after I returned home from the RTO office,” said Nayak, who’s a track maintenance worker with the railways.
However, Ashok Rath, who had found the lost wallet, acted as a good citizen and helped return it to its rightful owner. Rath’s exemplary act has come for praise from people who have come to learn about it.
Rath, who works as an assistant at a film studio, said: “I had gone to the RTO office around 1 pm to apply for my daughter’s driving license. I found a purse on the office premises. I looked around but nobody was present. I kept it safely and returned home.”
“On checking the wallet, I found an identity card with a phone number. So I immediately contacted the person to verify if he was the real owner. I then asked him to come to Ghatikiw to collect the wallet.”
Rath’s generous act provided an inspiration and hope to the society.
