The 54-year-old not only returned the wallet, but he also refused to accept any sort of reward from Jagpreet. Jagpreet, who felt that it was necessary for the world to know about the existence of people like Madan, posted the story on the official Facebook page of Delhi Traffic Police, praising Singh for his act and requesting the authorities to take notice and appreciate the man’s honesty. Soon enough, his post went viral and many people lauded Singh by posting comments and sharing the post on their own walls.
As the incident goes, Jagpreet’s car broke down on the morning of January 7, near Nizamuddin Bridge in Sarai Kale Khan. In the process of checking and restarting it, his wallet slipped out of his pocket and he didn’t notice.
Madan Singh was the traffic cop on duty. He spotted a cyclist picking up a wallet from the street. Becoming suspicious, he chased down the cyclist and took the wallet from him. It had a lot of money in Indian as well as foreign currency (Rs. 35,000 and $300), ATM cards, driving licence, and visiting cards. He dialled Jagpreet’s number from his card and asked him to collect the wallet from Nizamuddin. Jagpreet had no hopes of retrieving the money, but he was surprised to find everything in the wallet as it had been. An overwhelmed Jagpreet offered Singh Rs. 5,000 for his honesty but he refused to take the money saying that he was only doing his duty.
