Rashmita Behera and Sujata PandaSetting an exemplary example of ‘honesty


Cuttack:5/5/17:’19-year-old girls Rashmita Behera and Sujata Panda, who are part of the young brigade of the students’ traffic volunteers of Commissionerate police, deposited over Rs 1 lakh they recovered while doing their duty at busy Madhupatna junction yesterday.

Both Rashmita and Sujata are students of JKBK College and active members of the students’ traffic volunteers team engaged in streamlining traffic in several parts of the millennium city.

Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan in a tweet congratulated both the girls for showing honesty and returning the money. Such action by the young traffic volunteers will inspire others and mostly youth to follow their path.

“We were doing our duty yesterday when we found a bundle of Rs 2,000 notes lying on the road. We had frantically searched for the owner but could not find any claimant. As our duty was about to get over, we then handed over the bundle of cash to Assistant Commissioner of Police (Traffic) P.K.Dalai sir,” said Rashmita who hails from Ramnagar on the outskirts of the city.
