On Saturday evening, Suranjan went to the Abhi TVS showroom near his locality and expressed his desire to buy his dream bike to the showroom employees.
"He came to our showroom on Saturday evening. As per his wish, we showed him an Apache 160 4V bike. After seeing the bike, the man told us that he had ₹50,000 of coins and he wants to buy the bike in finance by depositing the amount as a down payment," Barnali Paul, staff of the showroom said.
