Delhi Police on Sunday claimed to have recovered the replica of Nobel Peace Prize and its citation along with the jewellery, stolen from Kailash Satyarthi’s home.
Three people were arrested in connection with the case, ANI reported.
The south Delhi apartment of the Nobel Laureate was robbed on February 6.
On Saturday, police had identified the burglars who were involved in the theft at the Nobel laureate’s house. The thieves entered the house solely with the intention to rob jewellery and had also broke into the neighbouring houses, The Indian Express reported.
“Earlier, Satyarthi’s son said the shoes belonged to his father but after his return, Satyarthi said the shoes don’t belong to him. We thought that the shoes belong to one of the burglars but later it turned out, that they had been left behind by them,” a senior police officer was quoted by PTI as saying.
“The shoes had been stolen from one of the other houses that had been broken into and probably were left by the burglars since they didn’t have enough space in their bag,” he added.
Kailash Satyarthi, children’s rights and education activist and the founder of the Bachpan Bachao Andolan in 1980, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 along with Pakistan’s Malala Yousafzai.
