New Delhi, June 18: A 22-year-old housekeeping staffer of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Gujarat's Ahmedabad showed alertness and quick thinking when he found a bag containing USD 750 and returned the money to its rightful owner with the help of CISF personnel, an official said on Thursday.
According to a statement issued by the airport authorities, Jeki Chavda, who was tasked with cleaning and sanitising trays used at the security check points, found USD 750 wrapped in a plastic bag in one of the trays on Wednesday evening.
