Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation bus crew performed an act of good Samaritan. They returned a bag that was left behind on the bus by a lady passenger. The bag reportedly contained Rs 1 lakh cash and a smart phone.
Bengaluru: The Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) driver and conductor of the bus plying between Airport and Whitefield became the pride of the transport corporation with their good deed. They returned the bag to the lady passenger, who had left it behind in the bus. The bag contained Rs 1 lakh cash and a smart phone was reportedly there in the bag.
According to BMTC driver Yellappa Betageri, Subhadra, a West Bengal resident, had boarded Volvo bus KA-57 F-0330 on route number 4, Kempe Gowda International Airport to Whitefield at 2:15 pm and alighted at Hebbal stop on January 19.
"The lady arrived in Bengaluru to appear for an exam and was probably tensed thinking about it and forgotten about the bag. The lady realised that her bag was missing. Two hours later, she contacted the Volvo depot, Hebbal, and managed to contact us. The lady gave the details of her missing bag, which we had kept safely. On our way back, from Whitefield to Airport at 4:30 pm on the same day, we returned the bag," said Yellappa.
BMTC managing director NV Prasad lauded the sincerity of the driver and the conductor and said this is the reflection of work ethics of the place.
