Robbers return wallet to owner, slap him for keeping Rs 500 notes
Vikas Kumar, a resident of Sector Eicher, works at a construction site in Greater Noida.
Kumar had finished work around 11 pm and was walking towards the bus stand, he told TOI.
“I was walking from the site towards the bus stand when two bike-borne men rode towards me. They snatched my purse and fled,” Kumar said.
He had three Rs 500 notes in his wallet when he lost it, and was thinking over what to do next, like call for help or go to the police.
To Kumar’s surprise, he saw the two men turn the motorcycle around and ride towards him.
“They came back and threw the purse at me. Then they slapped me and said I should have carried money in Rs 100 notes,” he said.
