An honest cabbie did his bit to try to restore the image of taxi drivers when he returned a handbag to an Indian tourist yesterday.
The tourist had left the cream colored bag containing 50,000 baht in Thai money, more than 23,000 rupees and other valuables including a gold necklace, reported Sanook.
Driver Panumart Jaranchon found the bag on the back console after he had brought an Indian lady called Preza and her husband Abhishek Kamawat, 35, to the Amari Watergate Hotel in Pratunam from Pattaya on Wednesday.
The couple were traced from the lady’s credit card after Panumart contacted 1644 at the FM91 radio station.
Panumart said he always tried to do good things and, though this incident was being publicized, he tried not to shout about it.
In a week dominated by the attack on a Brazilian model by a taxi driver rapist he said: “Every occupation has good and bad people. When I hear about drivers doing bad things I feel terrible”.
He was given 5,000 baht as a reward for his honesty.
