Kailash Satyarthi Nobel Peace Prize Replica retrieves, 3 captured

Kailash Satyarthi's Nobel Prize replica and citation recovered, three arrested

India's 2014 Nobel Peace laureate Kailash Satyarthi has expressed his relief and gratitude to police for recovering a replica of his prize medal that was stolen last week from his home in the capital New Delhi. The thieves allegedly decamped with the replica of the Nobel Medal and the citation along with a host of other mementos from around the world and some jewellery from Satyarthi's Kalkaji residence. All valuables other than the Nobel citation have been recovered.

The three accused brothers, Rajan alias Natta (25), Vinod (35) and Sunil (28), have had previous involvements in burglary and robbery cases. 10 teams were constituted for the case. "We thought they belonged to one of the burglars but it later turned out that they had been left behind by them", a senior police officer said, adding that the shoes had been stolen from one of the houses that they had earlier targeted. "The Nobel replica of Rabindranath Tagore was stolen in 2004 and has not been recovered till date", Joint Commissioner of Police (South-Eastern Range), RP Upadhayay, said.

"We have not got any information about the citation".

The theft happened in the wee hours on February 7 and police was informed about the theft at Satyarthis flat in Aravali Apartments around 9 AM.

Two other houses in the same area as Satyarthi's had also been broken into. His interrogation led to the arrest of the other two, the police said.

While Satyarthi thanked Delhi Police for its speedy probe and recovery of the Nobel replica, he had said he is hopeful the citation too would be recovered soon. Delhi police commissioner Amulya Patnaik also tweeted about the case being solved.

But they continued working in the same locality as labourers or painters.

Mr Satyarthi had presented his Nobel Peace Prize medal to President Pranav Mukherjee in January 2015.
