Sachin’s missing memento found
Mumbai: A memento, meant for cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar`s mother, suspected to have been stolen during a programme here, was found on Wednesday.
The memento -- a gold-plated disk with a coin, worth Rs 2 lakh -- was accepted by Tendulkar and his elder brother Nitin on behalf of their mother during a programme at Bandra`s Rang Sharada Auditorium last week.
Tendulkar released a CD of poems written by his late father, Ramesh Tendulkar, at the programme.
Afterwards, the memento could not be traced, so a case of theft was lodged with the police.
"The memento is found. It had not been stolen. There was some misunderstanding," said Samad Shaikh, Senior Inspector at Bandra Police Station.
Tendulkar and Nitin accepted the memento, after which Nitin had kept it aside amid boxes of CDs, Shaikh said.
"A guest, who had been presented with a CD, also picked up the memento by mistake," the officer said.
After seeing the media reports about missing memento, the person returned it to the organisers.
