Patna: Seeing the life of a beggar usually saddens people but we have a story for you which will make you feel sorry for yourself. This is a tale of a beggar in Patna who owns property of around Rs 1.25 crore.

Patna-based tramp Pappu kumar is a handicapped beggar who has four banks accounts. Kumar is an educated boy and once he was an aspirant of engineering.

The reality of this vagrant surfaced during the beggar removal drive by Railway Protection Force at Patna Railway Station.

RPF personnel recovered various essential things including four ATM cards and Rs 10 lakh from him.

According to the media reports, Kumar told the RPF that he has also given loan of Rs 10 lakh to the local traders in a new market area at a high rate of simple interest.

On further investigations, it was found that he has Rs 5 lakh balance in his bank account.

When a RPF official asked him to get treatment for his paralysed hand and leg, Pappu replied, 'If I am cured, how will I continue begging?'

Besides having a land of nearly 2000 square feet and five lakh cash in bank, Pappu has still no plans of giving up begging.

Feeling bad about yourself, much?
