A young male who found a wallet consisting of EUR2,000(₤1770; $2200) in cash on the street in Rome declined a reward after returning it to its owner.

Mossan Rasal, a 23- year-old Bangladeshi resident, went straight to the authorities after finding the product on the pavement in the Italian capital on Friday.

It was then scheduled the owner to collect the wallet from Mr Rasal.

He was thanked for his sincerity but said “I did not do anything remarkable,” adding: “That money wasn’t mine.”

” I didn’t know the amount since I didn’t count it, I just took everything to the [police] station,” Mr Rasal told Italian daily La Repubblica on Sunday.

” It was about being sincere, as my family taught me to be,” he included.

The wallet likewise contained several charge card, a driver’s licence and individual identification documents, authorities stated.

Mr Rasal, who runs a little stall in central Rome, has been residing in the city for 7 years. He stated that he would enjoy if the owner of the wallet, a local entrepreneur, now visited his stall and ended up being a routine consumer.
