An incident of a thief stealing a purse is not a rare one in today’s world. But returning a stolen purse is rare for sure. An incident of a thief returning a stolen purse to its owner has come to light from Hoshangabad city of Madhya Pradesh. While the news of a thief returning a stolen wallet is surprising, the reason why is truly heartening.
The reason why the thief returned the wallet to its owner was the picture of the owner’s mother that the owner of the wallet had kept in it. The thief returned the purse to its owner through courier but did not return the 1200 rupees kept in it. However, all the important documents kept in it including driving license, Aadhar card, and PAN card were intact when the courier was received by Mohammed Aslam, the owner of the purse.
When Mohammed Aslam called on that number, the man on the other side of the phone said that he had returned everything that was there in the wallet except the 1200 rupees. He also said that he had done so because the wallet had Aslam’s mother’s picture. The pickpocket went on to say that he also loves his mother and the photo kept in the wallet shows that its owner is his mother’s beloved child and hence he returned it. Aslam then informed the Sadar police station about getting his purse back.
