Auto-rickshaw driver returned woman’s phone
An auto-rickshaw driver returned a woman’s mobile phone. The woman was sitting in the auto and she had mistakenly left her mobile phone. When subedar Bhagirath Ahirwar and his team were on duty at Agrasen Square, the auto-rickshaw driver gave him a mobile phone and informed him that a female passenger had left the phone in the auto-rickshaw. The mobile phone was locked so that he could not make phone calls to any relative of the woman. Meanwhile, the woman’s husband made a phone call to that mobile phone and traffic subedar Ahirwar talked to him and informed him that an auto-rickshaw driver had given the mobile phone to the police. Later, the woman's husband reached there and received his wife’s mobile phone from the policemen. He also thanked the policemen and the auto-rickshaw driver for returning the phone.
