Can you imagine getting back something that you lost several days ago or maybe years ago? Hemant Padalkar was lucky enough to get back his wallet which he lost in 2006
Mumbai: A Mumbai man lost his wallet in a local train in 2006 which contained Rs 900. After 14 years, Mumbai Police found the wallet and returned it to the owner with a part of the amount.
Government Railway Police (GRP) official said that Hemant Padalkar had lost his wallet while travelling in a Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus-Panvel local train in 2006.
The official in April 2020, received a call from GRP, Vashi, informing him that his wallet was found. But Padalkar could not collect it due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After the easing of restrictions, Padalkar, a resident of Panvel in neighbouring Navi Mumbai township, went to the GRP office at Vashi where he was given part of the money that was in the wallet.
Padalkar said when his wallet went missing it contained Rs 900 including a Rs 500 note which was later demonetised. He added that the Vashi GRP returned Rs 300 to him. They deducted Rs 100 for stamp paperwork and said the remaining Rs 500 would be returned after exchanging the scrapped currency note with a new one, he added.
Padalkar said he was happy to get his money back.
