This ‘priceless’ gift given by London to India on Independence Day


The London Metropolitan Police returned to India during a Bronze Statue of Independence Day (Independence Day 2018) of Buddha stolen nearly a century ago from a museum of Nalanda in Bihar. This bronze statue with a silver pencil was one of the 14 statues stolen from a museum of Indian Archaeological Survey Institute in Nalanda in 1961. Prior to bringing the auction to London, it went through various hands for years.

According to the Metropolitan Police, the dealer and owner were told about this idol that this is the same idol which was stolen from India. Then they collaborated with the police and the antiquities unit and they agreed to return it to India. In March this year, in a trade fair, in the ‘Association for Research into Crime Against Linda Albertson and India Pride Project’ Vijay Kumar’s statue was noticed and they gave it to the police.

The yard handed over this statue to India’s ambassador to the UK Y Sinha in a program organized on the occasion of Independence Day in India House here. Sinha described the return of the statue of ‘Anmol Buddha’ as a good step. Britain’s Art, Heritage and Tourism Minister Michael Elise lauded the art and antiquity unit.

Maybe it is a trick to making good relation with India But whatever happens, the renaissance of India’s legacy will bring glory to India.
