Mumbai: In an astonishing incident, Mumbai police shows its strength by finding a bag containing Rs 72,000 of 26-year-old man from Rajasthan within a few hours in a taxi here last week.

On Friday morning, Manoj Pappuji Bagadi had come to Mumbai with his friend to purchase material for his clothes shop at his home town. “He got down from his taxi around 11.15 am at Grant Road but forgot to take his bag,” said a police officer, on condition of anonymity. After searching for an hour, he decided to approach the DB Marg police to register a complaint.
