A plastic carry bag containing Rs1 lakh was returned by the Railway Protection Force (RPF) team to a Navi Mumbai businessman, who forgot the bag in a first class compartment of a Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST)-bound local train on Tuesday afternoon.Recalling the incident, 30-year-old Lavin Semlani, a resident of Vashi, said: “I along with my younger brother Pritesh, were carrying Rs1 lakh cash, office keys and some documents in a plastic carry bag.

on the rack of the other compartment. Before they could get down to take the bag, the train started moving.The train reached Govandi station in the next three minutes and the duo got down and rushed to the compartment. To their utter shock, the bag was not found on the rack.However, the bag was in the possession of a five-member RPF team patrolling the train in plain clothes. The brothers told the RPF team that the money and the bag belonged to them. The team took them to the office of Alok Bohra, senior divisional security commissioner of the RPF at CST. After verifications, Bohra handed over the bag to the brothers.“We are very thankful to the RPF personnel for their honesty. We had borrowed the cash from a businessman a couple of months ago for the treatment of my father. We wanted to return his money at his Masjid office,” said Semlani. “RPF sub-inspector Amit Jain and his four subordinates were rewarded Rs1,000 on Tuesday evening for their honesty,” said Bohra.
