A Shirdi Saibaba Sansthan Trust security guard returned a bag containing Rs. 2 lakh in cash and important documents which he had found near the Dwarawati Bhakta Niwas building here on February 1.

The bag turned out to be that of a devotee from Damoh district in Madhya Pradesh and has been handed over to its owner, police said today. The guard, identified as Ganesh Ghorpade, spotted the bag near the main gate of the bhakt niwas last Thursday, Ahmednagar Deputy SP Anand Bhoite said.

“On opening it, Ghorpade found cash and documents. He also found the contact number of one Mahendra Rai, a resident of Damoh district, and rang him up,” he said. Ghorpade subsequently deposited the bag with the security office of the trust. Rai collected the bag on Wednesday and thanked Ghorpade for his honesty. Ghorpade has been given a commendation letter by the trust.
