Centuries-old stone inscription missing

Staff Correspondent


It was found during the British regime


Karwar: A centuries-old stone inscription written in Halegannada (old Kannada) has disappeared under mysterious circumstances from outside the old tahsildar office at Ankola. The incident came to light on Saturday.

The stone edict fixed to a cement slab was protected at the tahsildar office for the last several years.

The inscription was discovered during the British regime and was protected by the staff of the Revenue Department. It is suspected that it was stolen by some people who wanted to sell it as an antique piece overseas.

The construction of a mini Vidhana Soudha was in full swing near the place where the inscription was kept, which is about 20 ft away from the police station too.
