Silver bar weighing 11 kg that fell off from a two-wheeler was picked up and handed over to the Shevapet police by a 65-year-old man here on Wednesday.

The police said that Mani, a worker at a silver anklet unit in Shevapet, carried silver bars in his two-wheeler and arrived at the customer’s place on Tuesday and found 11 kg bar missing. Search efforts failed and he along with his unit owner Gopal lodged a complaint with Shevapet police.

Footages from surveillance cameras revealed that the two-wheeler passed through Navalar Nedunchezhiyan Road and the silver bar fell off from his vehicle and Mani failed to notice it. Footages also show a man in his bicycle picking up the bar and leaving the spot.
