British eclipse chaser robbed, priest helps

 Peter Toby, who had come to Bihar’s Taregna village from Britain to watch the century’s longest solar eclipse, lost his passport, money and all other valuables but still left with a smile after getting unexpected help from a priest who had given him shelter in his school.

“I was shocked to find everything — my passport, Rs 8,000 and $30 in cash, and my ATM card — missing from my bedroom,” London-based computer programmer Toby said.

When St Mary School principal Father Jones heard of Toby’s plight, he offered help. “I gave him Rs 2,000 after I was informed about his problem,” the priest said.
