US returns two rare artifacts to India



CHENNAI: A limestone carved relief estimated to be dated from 1st century BC to 1st century AD from Andhra Pradesh and a 17th century Nayaka-period Navaneetha Krishna Bronze from Tamil Nadu were handed over to the Indian high commissioner in London on Thursday.


The two artifacts are “linked to one of the most prolific art smugglers in the world” who were recently charged in Manhattan, New York, said a Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) release.


“An individual in the UK, who possessed the items came forward to HSI (US Department of Homeland Security), expressing a desire to surrender the pieces,” said the release. Both items would be physically examined by domain experts at a later date to establish their exact period and original location.


“The repatriated artifacts are just two of more than 2,600 antiquities that have been recovered around the world. The investigation remains ongoing,” said the release.


“The cultural significance of artifacts loed from regions around the world extends beyond a monetary value. The pieces, like those recovered through this operation, are stolen fragments of history; and it is an honour to return them to their ful home country,” said Peter C Fitzhugh, special agent in charge for HSI New York.


“HSI recognises the importance of both international and local partnerships in locating pilfered antiquities and cultural property, and it is through these repatriations that new generations are able to experience a part of their nation’s story,” Fitzhugh said.

This just like a small dot this return. You see huge stone sculptures of Indian Temples in front of Office building in USA. They all need to be returned.

Britishers are thieves and they loed our country and did not even spare clothes from poor children of our country ...The most interesting part is that even after looting the entire world they still remain paupers, have no economic or financial stability .. We always the people of India shall always curse them and their generations for the wrong doings

Obviously some thieves in collaboration with Indian po iticians have stolen a lot of historic artifacts and sold in the black market for money. But the current owner has shown remarkable virtue by deciding to return these to the place where they belong, and we should respect that and thank the kind soul.sdout

Sonia Gandhi is thrilled almost to the point of salivating. Now she can take them back to Europe on her next trip and sell them back to European art collectors. After all, that is one of the ways, among other equally nefarious ones, Congress is financed. is financed.
