Quotes

"This meant the sculpture should have been stolen at a later date. There seems to be no record with Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department about the missing idol and they were not aware of the theft till the smugglers confessed to having stolen it" he said
...Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa met Arnold Schwarzenegger who was in her capital for the music launch of a forthcoming film directed by Shankar. "It was fantastic to sit down with Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa before our event tonight (Audio launch of 'I') and talk about her state's success and challenges. That's the advantage of being an actor who was also a Governor!" tweeted Arnie. We, meanwhile, can't get over those shoes
...Then we have to establish that these idols date back 1,000 years and that they belong to the temple," a police officer said. The officer added, "We have constantly written letters of rogatory to the US police through CBI and Interpol. We are expecting a positive reply from the US police soon." The return of the two idols is likely to pave the way for the retrieval of more idols from museums abroad
According to Philip, the verification was a formality and a part of recovery process. "At a later stage, people should not say that these are not their idols. We have to subject it to same expert, who earlier gave us a documentary evidence and same was sent as incontrovertible evidence to Australia" the officer said
