Stolen Buddha statue to return to India after being found in UK
Source: The Guardian
A 12th-century statue of Buddha stolen from India nearly 60 years ago is to be returned to the country after it was discovered at a trade fair in the UK.
The bronze sculpture was one of 14 statues ransacked from the Archaeological Museum in Nalanda, eastern India, in 1961.
It is believed it changed hands several times over the years before eventually being sent to a London antiques dealer for sale.
