She forgot to note down the registration number of the auto-rickshaw. After an unsuccessful attempt to find the vehicle in the vicinity, she informed the police.

Senior Police Inspector Vijaysingh Bagal immediately deputed a team comprising personnel Prakash Pawar and Balaji Harne to trace the auto-rickshaw.

The team fanned the area and started inquiring with drivers operating on the said route, before zeroing it on to the auto-rickshaw and also finding the purse about which even the driver was apparently unaware.

Raghavan was joyfully surprised, when cops from the Mira Road police station called her up saying that they had found her lost purse with the cash intact. The purse was returned to the rightful owner who thanked the police for their quick response.
