       New Delhi:Had it not been for an alert cop, a 42-year-old man would have never got back his savings and valuables which he had lost at Nizamuddin station. Constable Dharmvir not only found the bag at a scanner machine but also returned it intact to the owner. 

    Shailendra Dhar, a resident of Mayur Vihar, approached the police on Friday evening after losing his bag containing around Rs 5 lakh, electronic gadgets like his iPad and camera, and his medicines for his spinal problem. A senior media professional, he was going to catch Chhattisgarh Sampark Kranti Express for his hometown Bilaspur.

       “A porter was carrying most of the baggage while I had this bag and my tripod. When we crossed the scanner around 5pm and went a little ahead towards the platform, I noticed that my shoulder bag was missing. I panicked and checked everywhere but could not find it,” Dhar said.
He approached police at Nizamuddin station. Additional DCP Sanjay Bhatia was informed and police started looking for the bag. “Its details were flashed at all exit and entry points and all points of suspicion were searched ,” Ravindra Yadav, additional CP, crime and railways, said.

       A team also began to scan the CCTV footage from cameras installed in and around the station. “On the footage at the X-ray scanner installed towards the Sarai Kale Khan side, we spotted Dhar entering with the bag on his shoulder but the exit camera footage showed him without the bag. This made it clear that he forgot the bag at the scanner in a hurry,” said Bhatia.

      Meanwhile, Dharmvir located Dhar around 8pm from the information flashed across the station.

     “At one point I lost hope that I will get the bag back but the cop showed immense sense of duty and perseverance in carrying out his duty. He has set an example for his colleagues and instances like these restore our trust in our police force which is often regarded as callous and corrupt,” Dhar said.

       Dharmvir will be rewarded for his honesty and setting an example for his colleagues.
