Millionaire beggar dies, Police Took 8 Hours to Count his Coins

Police discovered a sack full of money certificates of fixed deposits and bank savings accounts from a beggar.

The 82-year-old man who died three days ago following a train accident at Vashiin Mumbai had spent years begging around train stations.

When a team of the Government Railway Police visited his shanty near Govandi after they identified him with the help of hawkers and beggars, they found coins amounting to Rs 1.77 lakh in gunny bags and buckets covered with tarpaulin.

It took the cops eight hours to count the coins kept in the shanty, police said. The team was left shocked again after they found receipts of fixed deposits in different banks, worth 8.77 lakh.

Police have said they will travel to Rajasthan to trace his family. Meanwhile, Azad’s mortal remains and his belongings have been handed over to his next of kin.
