New Delhi: Three persons have been arrested in connection with the theft of Nobel Prize replica, citation and ornaments from Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi’s house in southeast Delhi’s Kalkaji area. A senior police officer said, three persons were arrested and the stolen Nobel replica, citation and other jewellery items have been recovered.
A replica of the Nobel Peace Prize and its citation awarded to Satyarthi were among the valuables stolen from his southeast Delhi residence in his absence on February 7. The child rights activist won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. He shared the prize with Pakistans education activist Malala Yousafzai.
