Indian police continue search for missing Buddha head
The Dhamma Times, 1 January 2005


India - The 5th-century Buddha head of Sarnath remained untraced a day after it was found missing from glasscase in the archaeological gallery of the Indian Museum in the metropolis.

"So far, there was no arrest. The search and investigation are on", Deputy Commissioner (Detective Department), Kolkata police, Piyush Pande told PTI.

Police have sealed the entire area and fingerprint experts and dog squads were engaged to recover the head belonging to Gupta period.

"It is a priceless piece with immense antique value. The intricate design on sandstone made it one of the most interesting exhibits of the museum", said an official of the museum.

In 1974, an organised gang had stolen 16 stone sculptures of Gupta period. But the police recovered all these stolen sculpures in a fortnight's time. [PTI/NEW KERALA]
