Woman gets back lost gold,laptop and another gold incident – TOI

Kavitha should consider herself extremely fortunate – for she got back what was lost by her so negligently.  At times, when property gets stolen from safe places, this woman lost a bag containing laptop and 20 sovereigns of gold negligently on the road  -  there are good people all the time and a good soul who found it on the road, took pains to safely hand it over to the nearest police station.

The Police, especially the Assistant Commissioner Mr Dhanraj deserve special appreciations also.    (do read the tail piece also)

Today’s (29th Sept 2011) Times of India reports :

Chennai: A techie,who lost her bag containing 20 sovereigns of gold and a laptop,was pleasantly surprised when police called her three days later on Wednesday saying they had found it. The bag was handed over to the police by another techie,who found it abandoned on the road.

R Kavitha,an employee of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) who lost her bag,sent an email complaint to Selaiyur assistant commissioner of police Dhanraj on Tuesday.On Wednesday,the police called to say they found her bag.I was asked to confirm if it was mine.I was really happy to see my bag and the contents, Kavitha said.  Kavitha left the bag behind while she was loading luggage onto the car from her house in Rajakilpakam near East Tambaram.She realized that she had lost her bag only later.I was in a hurry to go to my sisters house in Meenambakkam.I think I left the bag on the road.When I realized,I returned to check whether I had left the bag in the house.I was anxious,confused and scared.I searched but did not find it, she said.She then sent a mail to Dhanraj.   Kavitha is a native of Chidambaram and lives with her family in Rajakilpakkam,police said.The abandoned baggage was recovered by another software engineer,R Madhusudan,who worked for CSC Computers.He found the bag containing the valuables lying on the road near Rajakilpakkam and handed it over at the local police station.
On Wednesday,Kavitha and Madhusudan were called to the Greater Chennai police commissioners office in Egmore,where the recovered valuables were handed over to Kavitha in front of assistant commissioner of police (PRO) A D Mohanraj.Kavitha commended Madhusudan and the police personnel for retrieving her missing valuables.

In another unrelated incident a Mayiladuthurai based businessman was allegedly robbed of 12.5 kg of gold worth 3.25 crore.  Bizman robbed of Rs 3.5 crore worth gold on highway.  TOI reports that  the  businessman,Pavan Kumar jain (39),claimed four persons on two bikes intercepted his car at Patharakkudi on the
Seerkali Bypass Road
at 11.50pm on Tuesday.

Police said Jain,who was in the business of buying and selling gold bars,had gone to Chennai to make his usual purchases.While returning,he had stopped his car at Mamallapuram on the East Coast Road for supper,and this was where the miscreants are alleged to have noticed that he was carrying gold.Police said that Jain had kept the gold in a briefcase and placed it on the dashboard.  The four highway robbers rode ahead of Jains car and suddenly forced it to a halt.They gestured to him to get out,and when there was no immediate response from Jain,one of them broke the front window,while another pointed a gun toward the victim.The four persons then escaped with the prized catch of gold,even as Jain stood motionless in the thick of night.Jain lives with his family at Pattamangalam Street in Mayiladuthurai Later,Jain told the Seerkazhi police that the number plates of the robbers bikes had been covered with a black cloth.

Tailpiece  :  that he had the briefcase containing gold with him and went for supper theory.  The Police also said that the narration of Jain was inconsistent.  Interestingly, DSP of Seerkazhi A Annadurai, who visited the crime scene was quoted as saying to TOI that Police did not buy the businessman’s claim that he was carrying gold worth 3.25 crore in the car.

**  in the Chennai incident, even by a casual estimate, the value was around 4.5 lakhs.   The loss appears to have arisen more out of negligence and carelessness and after having lost such a huge amount, the person did not even care to rush to the nearest Police Station for preferring a complaint.

Instead she had chosen to lodge complaint through e-mail.  Mercifully, she had not posted this on Facebook and Twitter and expect the Police to follow up.  Such is the casual attitude of people.

Police did not retrieve but a Police official replete with so much of work including Crime investigation, bandobust duties to politicians, busy during the preparations to local elections – still occasioned to see the e-mail and took action !!
