A janitor at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport's Terminal 2 returned a passenger's four diamond rings which were worth Rs 40 lakhs. For her honesty, she is rewarded Rs 2,000, a certificate, and a trophy on November 24 by the Airport Operator and SILA Group, her employer. 37-year old Suman Dhoiphode works at the CIP Lounge, which is only accessible to first class and business class passengers. She found four diamond rings lying at the washroom's basin. Though she couldn't find the fliers, she reported the matter to the Airport Operator.
According to reports in Mid-Day, the passenger later realised about her rings and notified the 'Lost and Found' department via e-mail. The department handed the rings over to the passenger in the flight.
“When the female passenger on October 28 left the washroom to board her flight, I went inside and saw these rings beside the basin. I could make out that the she had left them there since I had checked the place before she went in," said Suman while speaking to popular daily, who has studied till Std X. She further added, “I am happy that my efforts could make someone get her valuables back. I have always been honest in my work and also teach my children the same."
