THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A TTE of the Southern Railways earned kudos on Sunday after he returned some money left behind in the train to its owner. And for the owner, none other than former minister M Vijayakumar, it was the first such experience in his life. “There were several instances in which I lost money and other valuables during journeys. But this is for the first time that I am getting it back,” a joyous Vijayakumar said.

Muhammed Ashraf, the TTE, found the money after the former minister got down at the Thiruvananthapuram Central Station at 3 a m. The money was found under the pillow in the AC coach. After returning from Nagercoil, he contacted Vijayakumar over phone and conveyed the good news. The TTE then met Vijayakumar at his place and handed over the money.  Vijayakumar said he would write to the Divisional Railway Manager and other top officials of the Railways about the praiseworthy act of their staff.

“We should appreciate such acts. Especially at a time when some Railway staff are in news for the wrong reasons. “Appreciating such acts would also convey our anger for wrong acts,” he said. Muhammad Ashraf hails from Thiruvananthapuram.
