Dunedin man's plea for return of bag

Karuna Sindhu Dasa knows he might not get his iPad back, but he is holding out hope for the rest of his bag.

The Dunedin psychiatrist and Hare Krishna follower said he was distributing books in South Dunedin on Monday morning when his bag was taken.

"Stupidly, I left my bag ... near the side of the road, near the post office,'' he said.

"Someone must've whisked it away.''

The bag had an iPad, a pair of cymbals, books, a calendar and a box of nuts, he said.

Dr Sindhu Dasa said he thought the iPad was "probably gone for good, because it's expensive''.

But he hoped someone would at least return the other contents of his bag.

"I'm trying my best to do good in society,'' he said.

"Hopefully, people will recognise [that].''
