Recounting the incident, Waheeda said, "I boarded a Mazda bus in the morning near GB Pant Hospital, Sonwar, to reach my parental home at Batamaloo. When the bus reached Radio Kashmir Gate near Zero Bridge, I got down from the vehicle after mistakenly handing over a gold coin instead of a 10-rupee coin as bus fare to the conductor."

Realizing her mistake only after entering a jeweler's shop and finding one coin less in her purse, Waheeda expressed her urgency, stating, "I didn’t realize that I had handed over a fortune to the conductor instead of a 10-rupee coin. I was in haste as I wanted to help my sick brother-in-law."
