Your ONLY path here is to ask the company you travelled with. They'll be the only one with his details, IF you booked under your names for the trip. Even then, they likely won't give you his name for privacy reasons. However, if you impress upon them the gravity of the situation, they might be prepared to contact him on your behalf and see if he's ...


In most juristictions that operate with something approaching sanity, someone is liable for accidental damage in the following three cases: They caused the damage deliberately or with "blameworthy carelessness".

The issue is that in order to give you a specific seat, they need it to be free. If the better seats are already given away, normally the people who have received a seat have this printed on their (e-) tickets. Moving someone away from their seat because you want it is very tricky. So the best strategy would be to get a better seat in the first place ...


Contact the coach company: the man you lent the book to might have handed it in as lost property at the end of his journey. It's unlikely that they'll be willing to give you his details because that would be a violation of his privacy. Would they even know who he was? Do they have your details, for example?

Most full-price airlines, typically if you have some frequent-flyer status or a higher-priced ...


Try putting a personal ad in local newspapers that are sold in the towns of origin and destination for your journey. Maybe you could include TinyURL links (or equivalent) to your Facebook and LinkedIn pages. It's a long shot, but it may be worth trying if the paper is important enough.


In India Government store the name and other detail only if coach is reserved and not for general people. If you paid for a reserve seat a call to Rail department will certainly help you. If it was general coach then you need to take help of Newspaper by publish the ads.


As for liability, everything depends on what jurisdiction you'll be able to work. If it will be the European (continental - based on Napoleonic Code) law, then you're liable for every damage you have caused, and the factor of 'recklessness' or 'guilt' is unimportant. So the question will arise, who have caused the damage to the laptop, which is not obvious. ...
