“Mo Bus’’ driver becomes change maker, returns Rs 49,500 he found in bus


Bhubaneswar: Honesty is a rare virtue. What does one do when he/she finds a bag full of cash? It is highly unlikely it could reach the owner but not in this particular case.
Biswanath Khatua, “Mo Bus’’ captain made sure the bag he found, which had Rs 49,500 cash in it, was returned to its rightful owner. Kathua, who works as a driver for “Mo Bus’’ employed with Traveltime, a company engaged by the Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) company to run “Mo Bus’’ was well appreciated for his honesty by the team.
The incident occurred on Wednesday morning, 26th June, when Khatua stumbled upon a bag lying unattended while returning his bus on Route No. 25 to Mancheswar terminal point. The incident took place at 9:00 am in the morning, and Khatua followed up for 2 and half hours to return the money. It can be mentioned here that the Route No. 25 of “Mo Bus’’ runs between Mancheswar and Dumduma and vice versa.
