One more idol found on riverbank

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Dec 1 - A joint team of Assam Police and State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) today recovered another idol and three other items from Umananda Ghat here.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (Panbazar) Dr Pahary Konwar told The Assam Tribune that four items, including an idol of Nandi, a metallic diya, a piece of �sankha� and one �ashana� were found on the riverbank today. The two-day search operation carried out by the police and SDRF personnel yielded a total of 45 items, including idols of gods and other items used in Hindu rituals.

The police are still clueless how so many such items found their way to Umananda Ghat. All these items are now in the custody of Latasil police.

�Today officials of the Assam State Museum and the Directorate of Historical and Antiquarian Studies visited the Latasil Police Station and examined the items. According to them, these items have no antique value,� Dr Konwar said.

The ACP also added that some of these recovered items are too heavy and not easy to carry alone.

A person from the city has claimed ownership of one idol which, according to him, was stolen few days ago. Meanwhile, some residents of Umananda Ghat have informed the police that about a week ago they had seen a group of people offloading some cartons from a van and throwing them into the river at night.

Director General of Police (in-charge) Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta today announced cash rewards for all members of the police team, which recovered these items.

The team comprises police personnel Suchitra Biswas, Mansing Teron, Gautam Das, Dipak Lahkar, Chand Md Ali and officer-in-charge of Latasil police station Upen Kalita, and SDRF personnel Nabajyoti Borah, Chandra Kumar Mandal, Dilip Urang, Joy Krishnan Tanti, Dipankar Borah, Biswajit Saikia, Pranjit Talukdar, Sukumar Saloi and Kankan Kalita.
