How many of you will vouch for the fact that whenever you have left your phone, wallet or basically anything in auto-rickshaws itâ€™s as good as gone? Now Iâ€™m not calling rickshaw drivers dishonest, but it is practically impossible for them to locate you back and return your belongings. But one rickshaw driver from Pune, Dilip Raising decided to go against this odd and travelled for 32 km, only to return a laptop to its rightful owner â€“ software engineer M Narendra Chaudhari. Dilip Raising drove all the way from Baner area in Pune to the Railway station to search for his passenger, Chaudhari. Unable to find him there, Raising went to the Magarpatta police chowkey and handed them the bag. Image source
Chaudhari had boarded Dilip Raisingâ€™s auto-rickshaw from Magarpatta area to go to Baner on Sunday, 8:30 AM and in a hurry forgot to collect the laptop.
It is only after getting off from the rickshaw that he realised he had left his laptop. Raising himself discovered the bag when he went to the Railway station and let another passenger board the rickshaw.
Assistant inspector of the Hadapsar police station Salim Nadaf, felicitated Raising, as this was a one-of-its-kind story.
Narendra Chaudhari had lodged a complaint in the same police station and was more than happy to find his laptop safe.
