After the incident was reported to Police, they said humanity is still alive today. 

How did the bag get misplaced? 

According to Free Press Journal, the bag was lost when dropped from a scooter. On May 7, Sushali Dhananjay Nakhwa, 10-year-old daughter Vidhi Dhananjay Nakhwa fell ill and was hospitalized.

Sushali is a fish-seller. Sushali's husband was trying to arrange money for their daughter's treatment. He was on his scooter while going to a jewelry shop to sell a mangal sutra of around 35 grams in a black color bag.

The bag fell on the road, and he didn't notice. The bag was later discovered by two garbage collectors identified as Ashraf Asgar Sheikh, 18, and Amit Lalji Chaudhary, 23, both residents of Bori Pakhadi. 

Ashraf and Amit found the bag alongside the road near Anandi Hotel while collecting usable items in the garbage. They took the bag to Uran police station and helped the police so that the bag could be returned to the original owners.

The police traced the original owner using the mobile found in the bag and asked them to come to the police station to collect their lost items. After taking the necessary verification steps, the police returned the items and Ashraf and Amit to Sushali's husband. 

Despite knowing that the bag could have changed their fortune overnight, Ashraf and Amit's deed of kindness is worth praising. Police facilitated them and gave them a cash reward for their kindness.
