Theft in Visva-Bharati, vital files missing

Kolkata: Some important documents and hard disks were stolen from the Visva-Bharati University premises in West Bengal's Birbhum district, police said on Saturday. The varsity was founded by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore.

The theft took place late Friday night from the high-security zone of the university.

"The university filed a complaint on Saturday that some important documents including hard disks containing vital information were stolen from the university premises," a police officer said.

"We are probing the matter and also looking into how the theft took place in spite the place being a high security zone with the university deploying its own security personnel," the officer added.

No arrest has been made so far.
