Jharkhand’s Dhanbad, a city known as the “capital of coal”, is allegedly hunting for valuable treasure. According to the reports, an unidentified Kolkata man who visited Rajganj police station in Dhanbad district three months ago claimed that there is treasure buried in the village of Gangapur. He also described the way to dig the treasure that can not be excavated by hand.
The unknown man left the place after informing about the treasure. The villagers started digging the area since then. After several days of excavation, the police administration came to know about the happening and stopped the excavation.
As per the reports, the excavation started four days ago and more than a dozen rural youths are engaged in digging on daily wages. However, no permission has also been taken from the district administration for this excavation. So far only normal stones have been found in the area.
Rajganj SHO Chandan Kumar said that people are digging in a superstitious affair. The police are keeping an eye on the matter.
