A Wild Goose Chase
BANGALORE, April 8(DHNS)
Imagine if an honest man had to run around at his expense to return something that was lost due to a third person's negligence!
hat's precisely what happened to Spot City Taxi driver Yesu Krishna around 8 PM on Monday when he went to pick up a customer at Crescent Complex on Lavelle Road. Minutes after reaching the complex, an office boy came out with computer and related paraphernalia, placed them inside and told him to wait for his boss. A lady walked out of the building, got into the taxi and asked him to drop her of at Koramangala. On reaching the destination, she paid him and when he reminded her of the luggage, she said, "It's not mine," and walked away!
Yesu Krishna returned to the Spot City Taxi control room and informed the Fleet Manager about the luggage. The Spot Taxi personnel filed a complaint at Ulsoor police station. The mystery would have remained unsolved for a longer time if not for a complaint filed with Cubbon Park police station that a computer had been lost. The computer belonged to a fashion designer who worked for a clothing company housed on the third floor of the same Complex. Both the women were working in the same complex, had booked taxies around the same time with different operators. When Yesu reached the spot first, the fashion designer's assistant presumed that it was his boss's taxi and loaded the computer.
It was the mistake of the office boy which had Yesu go on a wild goose chase.
