14 antique objects stolen from museum in TN
Thanjavur: Fourteen antique objects like a small emerald lingam, three small idols of Lord Krishna and bronze knives have been stolen from a private museum in the Royal Palace, police said.
They said the thieves broke open the lock of the showcase in which the objects were kept and stole the articles on Friday. Though CCTV was in place, it was not functioning due to a power cut that evening, police said.
The palace managing trustee Sivaji Raja Bhonsle, a descendant of Raja Serofji, who lives in the palace filed a complaint with police stating that 14 objects were missing from the showcase.
These included a one inch `maragathalingam`, a three inch `spadikalingam`, a quarter inch ivory elephant and an ivory comb.
The Nayak- Maratha palace complex is nearly 400 years old.
