5000 old artefacts missing from AMU

Around 25% of rare artefacts kept in Aligarh Muslim University's archaeology section, some of them even 5000 years old, have gone missing. The head of varsity's history department has ordered an internal inquiry.

According to departmental sources, the artefacts, collected from various excavation sites of Atranjikhera, Fatehpur Sikri and Jhakhera, were either stolen or misplaced during the shifting of the varsity's archaeological section in 2014. Several other artefacts have been also damaged in the process.
