The city police appreciated Abdul Mustak, a functionory of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), for handing over Rs 50,000 to the police, which he had found lying near his tailor shop at Ayanavaram.

Last Friday, two unknown persons had claimed the bundle of currency notes, which was lying near Abdul’s shop, for themselves.

Abdul apprehended the two persons along with the money and reported the incident to the Ayanavaram police station. But the duo escaped before the police could arrive on the spot.

Subsequently, Abdul handed over the money to sub-inspector Kumaresan, who later found out that the money belonged to a carpenter named Devaraj.

Devaraj had taken a payment of Rs 2 lakh from a building contractor but had lost Rs 50,000 on the way near Abdul’s shop.

The police handed over the money to Devaraj and appreciated Abdul’s good deed.
