Srinagar, Jun 25 : Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah lauded a Kashmiri driver for returning a bag with cash and jewellery worth Rs 10 lakh to a tourist in south Kashmir district of Shopian.

Mr Abdullah, who is the vice-president of National Conference (NC), said the driver is an example worthy of emulation. 'Well done Tariq. Proud of you. You are an example worthy of emulation,' Mr Abdullah wrote on micro-blogging site twitter on Monday.

An official said Tariq Ahmad found the bag, which also had three high-end mobile phones in it, at a tourist spot Aharbal in Shopian. 'He waited for a call on these phones, and made sure it is returned to its owner and did not accept anything in return,' the official added. (UNI)
