Taxi driver Vijesh Narayan always make sure that whatever he finds inside his taxi is returned to its owner.

On Tuesday  last week Mr Narayan found a black purse when cleaning his vehicle.

Mr Narayan, 47, has been driving a taxi for five years and never gives into temptation when he finds something in his vehicle.

“In the black purse were some cash and cards. The cards belong to someone who was a student. I tried contacting her but it was hard so I posted one of her identification card (ID) on Facebook and one of her friends responded,” Mr Narayan said.

“I returned the purse on Friday. I have found wallets, phones and accessories and always try to find and return them to its owner.”

“It is always good to be honest. When I returned the purse the girl was speechless because I think she did not expect to get it back.

“Her father wanted to offer me a reward but I told him that it was okay because I was returning the purse to its rightful  owner.”

Mr Narayan said it was important  for Public Service Vehicle (PSV) drivers to always be honest.

“Always return whatever you find in your vehicle to customers because it was never yours in the first place,” he said.

“Life is already tough and you may never know what someone is going through and your honesty can encourage a person to do better and return the favour to someone else if they find something that does not belong to them.”

Alisha Whippy said she never thought her purse would be returned to her.

“I want to thank the driver for his honesty. It is not everyday we find someone who returns something that doesn’t belong to them,” Ms Whippy said.
