Contract Act_Practical Problems_109

H, a captain in the army, was stationed in a house requisitioned by the Government. He accidently found a broach in a room occupied by him. He handed over the broach to the police, and they, failing in their attempts to discover the right owner delivered it to P, who was the owner of the house. P sold the jewel for Rs. 2,000. H sued for the recovery of the broach or its value on the ground that he was the finder. Will he succeed?
