In times when people, more often than not, show their selfish sides to others, a traffic policeman’s act of honesty has got people talking. A businessman lost his wallet that contained Rs 50,000 and his cards recently. Of course, with the wallet, he also lost all hopes of getting it back. Because not a lot of people will come across a cash-loaded wallet, and if they do, it’s highly unlikely that they would return it at all. But Sub Inspector Madan Singh did.

Jagpreet Singh, the businessman who lost his wallet, took to Facebook to applaud the traffic official’s honesty and righteousness. After Jagpreet dropped his wallet near Nizammudin Khata, Madan found somebody picking it up. The traffic policeman was quick to take the wallet and keep it in his custody. A day after, to his unexpected and pleasant surprise, Jagpreet got a call informing him about his wallet.

It is amazing how such acts of honesty continues to take place when all people care for mostly, is themselves. Read his Facebook post here.
