In his post, Mr Singh says he accidentally dropped his wallet on January 7 while pushing his car which broke down in the middle of a road. He only realized his wallet was missing once he reached home. He doesn't reveal where this happened. Luckily for him, a cop found it.
"I got a call from Sub Inspector Madan Singh who saw one cyclist picking up my wallet from the road and his sharp eyes saw him," he says on Facebook. The cop realised that the wallet didn't belong to the cyclist and confiscated it. It contained the cash, including some foreign currency, along with debit and credit cards and other important identification cards.
"He then searched my wallet and found my visiting card and
called me on my cell phone and informed that he found my wallet
and informed me about where he found it, and advised me to
collect from him from same intersection where I dropped it," Mr
When he went to collect his wallet, he was surprised to find all his belongings intact in the wallet. "I tried to reward him too but he politely refused to accept reward and identified my identity and handed over my wallet to me," he says.
He ends his post by requesting Delhi Police to 'appreciate this man and his honesty'.
Several people on Facebook were left impressed by the cop's actions.
"Hats off to this honest cop. There is no denying the fact that good people are there but such honest people are rare. We must salute to this legend who made true efforts to locate the gentleman who lost his wallet," says one commenter. "I am really happy to read about this honest police person! Only such people keep our faith in police alive. I earnestly wish there were many more like him in our police force!" says another.
