Daijiworld Media Network - Mumbai (MS)

Mumbai, Oct 8: Police were in for a shock when they searched the house of a beggar, who died in an accident in the city, as they found fixed deposit (FD) certificates amounting to Rs 8.77 lac with various banks and Rs one and a half lac in coins alone.

Birju Chandra Azad was living in a dilapidated one room home and was making a living by begging on the streets. Police spent hours together to count the coins that were found in bags which amounted to a whopping Rs 1.5 lac.


Police with the deceased beggar's belongings

The identity of the beggar could be known because of the voter identity, PAN and Aadhar cards he was holding. He lived alone in a slum at Govandi in the city. According to senior police officer the beggar lost his life while trespassing the railway tracks between Govandi and Mankhurd station.

Police went in search for any relatives of the deceased Birju Chandra Azad, who died on October 4. They tracked his house to a slum in Govandi. There they came to know about the wealth the beggar had amassed over a long period of time.

The coins are kept in the safe custody of the police. The respective banks will be notified about the death of Birju. The cops will search for any relatives of the deceased in order to hand over his belongings.

    After the death of his wife about 15 years ago, he never visited his native place, Rajasthan. His two sons were living with him in Govandi and after they went to better housing, this man declined to go to live with them. though they requested him, as per report.

    All the 8.77 lakh worth FDs have the nomination of his elder son who is presently in Rajasthan. Though, bank gives money to the nominee, under the law, it belongs to all dependents and the nominee is a trustee on their behalf. Since this man died intestate (without written will) all his sons and daughters can claim the amount through court. His other son lives in Vikhroli, Mumbai. But, now another 3 people have come forward claiming they are his sons and brother.

    Therefore proving that besides Pakoda Selling and Chowkidari, career options like Beggar are still a great career plan for India's jobless. Our great leadership knows best. Who says there are no jobs?

    @Prakash mangalore ,no,definately no .even if are jobless would never beg so long one has healthy two hands and 2legs would prefer to go around and seek job or clean roads.

    because not ready to hear from some people hate words,filthy language ,even spit on you,some thrash you,,sit for long hours in rain and hot sun,co beggers even advance on you?

    thank God and can boil water and drink a tee when you dont have any food.sleep in your bed ,Have your peace.when you dont have food just go to Bakery ,buy bread eat without butter.drink a glas of water and sleep .

    Poor fellow begged until his last breath... But... Whatever he accumulated by begging, by hearing bad words etc etc. went in waste... he could not enjoy his wealth in his last days... To the notice of the concerned authorities... Don't give his money to his relatives.. Donate to the needy... handicapped... bed ridden people for their medicines and survival.. May the departed soul of Mr. Birju Chandra rest in peace.
