The K.G. Chavadi police on Monday honoured a 60-year-old woman for handing them over a smartphone that she found lying on the road.

Kannammal, a daily wage labourer, handed over the phone belonging to Karuppusamy who misplaced it near a bakery on Palakkad Main Road on Sunday. The phone was worth ₹20,000.

Mr. Karuppusamy was asked to come to the police station on Monday with the relevant documents, where Ms. Kannammal handed over the phone to him in person. Sub-Inspector J. Saravanan felicitated her with a shawl and commended her, the police said.

“She was not even aware of the smartphone’s price,” Mr. Saravanan said on Tuesday.
