New Delhi, March 11: Nobel Peace Price Winner Kailash Satyarthi’s citation has been recovered from jungles near southeast Delhi’s Sangam Vihar area, informed police on Saturday.
On the night of Feb 6, child rights activist Satyarthi’s Nobel citation was stolen from his house. Police had earlier arrested 3 people on February 12 in connection with the theft from Satyarthi’s Kalkaji home. While the Nobel replica and other stolen items were recovered, the citation was not found.
However, yesterday police recovered the citation from the jungles behind the Sangam Vihar area. A senior police officer said, it took over two days with several policemen and dog squads to recover the possession.
“The citation has been recovered in pristine condition,” police said.
“The accused had thrown it away in the jungles after thinking it to be a piece of paper. There were some other items also recovered along with the citation,” the officer said.
Child Rights Activist Satyarthi won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. He shared the honour with Pakistan’s child rights activist Malala Yousafzai. Mr
Satyarthi had presented his Nobel medal to President Pranab Mukherjee in January, 2015. The original medal has been preserved and is now on display at the Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum.
