Man reserved for trying to illegally sell antiques



Varthur police the gendarmes booked a man on Tuesday for trying to sell antique jewelry found while digging for gas pipelines in the city.

Police officers Manjunatha Y and Naganna, attached to the Varthur Police Station, were tasked with investigating burglaries in their jurisdiction and going behind the tracks, catching the defendants and recovering the stolen booties.

Manjunatha and Naganna on Tuesday received information from one of their informants that a suspicious man was hiding near the Ambedkar statue in Gunjurpalya in Varthur and was trying to sell jewelry, possibly stolen. At around 4:15 p.m., the two plainclothes policemen rushed to the scene and began to monitor the man from a distance. “The man had a bag and he was trying to sell jewelry that looked antique, but was not gold,” said a senior police official.

Manjunatha and Naganna apprehended him. The two checked his bag and found a chain made of old coins, and two antique earrings and rings, which were not all gold, but looked antique. When the cops questioned the man about his identity, he said his name was Amith Kumar Dal, from Balasore in Odisha. The cops took Dal at the police station and questioned him further.

Dal told the cops that he was employed to take measures for the laying of gas pipelines. On the afternoon of May 12, around 1:30 p.m., a group of six employees including Dal and his partner Manoj were digging when they came across a treasure, made up of ancient jewelry. Since there were six of them, they decided to divide the treasure by six so that they could sell it and earn money after their working hours.

Currently, Varthur Police are working to recover the shares of others. Later, these antiques will be sent to the Archeology Department to determine their age and what might be worth their value.

The cops booked Dal and Manoj under CrPC and IPC Sections of cheating, with a section under The Karnataka Treasure Trove Act. Other investigations are in progress.
