I dont think its safe to buy a phone from a friend who find it somewhere!! He himself is not keeping the phone… what in case if it is stolen… and later on you get caught!! Now a days… very good phones coming @ 10k and if you can spend that much on an old phone.. you can go for 15 to 20k phones easily!!
My tip is dont buy it!! Not everything that glitters is a gold!! good luck!!

Depends on how well connected the original person who owned the phone is.
If he has contacts, a phone can be tracked to a pin point location in anywhere in India using imei number
So even if you plan to buy it, use it without a sim

Don’t buy it,what if that phone was linked to some criminal case.Saw some recent news where phones used in crimes were later sold off to unsuspecting people who then got entangled in police investigation.

Why bother? New S9 is available for 21k on flipkart.
