An auto-rickshaw driver in Thane handed over to police a bag containing gold jewellery worth Rs 5 lakh, left behind by a passenger couple, police said on Thursday.

Bipinbhai Patel found a bag containing jewellery in his rickshaw on Wednesday, a police officer said.

Realising that a couple who had boarded the rickshaw earlier in the day must have left it behind, he approached the Local Crime Branch of Thane Rural Police at Kashimira.

A police team traced its owners, Zulfikar Lakdawala and Rachna Lakdawala, who are London-based lawyers and are currently visiting India, and returned the bag, the official said.
