An exemplary police constable

A police constable who was on civil duty at Dalada Maligawa has returned a lost handbag containing cash Rs. 450,000 to a woman who has left it in the flight of stairs that leads to the balcony of the Maligawa’s Ihala Maalaya.

Police Constable 15331 Punchihewage Ajith who found the handbag full of cash with local currency and Euros returned it to its owner A.A. Rukmali Adhikari who was in tears after losing her bag with cash and the passport .

Rukmali visited Maligawa on Sunday (19) with her husband W. A. Dinesh Priyadarshana to pay homage to the Sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha after returning from Italy. She is a resident of Medawala, Badalgama.

She rushed to Maligawa police post upon finding that her handbag was missing with all her hard- earned money.

”She could not recollect where she had left her hand bag in the Maligawa premises,” PC Ajith said.

”I found a white handbag lying on the stairway to the Pattiruppuwa ( balcony),” he said.

”I brought it to the office at Pahala Maalaya (downstairs) and kept it to be returned to the owner.

I was happy to hand it over to the owner,” he added.

Rukmali’s husband Priyadarshana when contacted by the Daily News said, the bag was returned to them by the police and they were very happy.
