Rare coins or replicas stolen?

Rare Mughal era coins were reportedly stolen from the Government Museum complex in Egmore on Thursday night. The authorities, however, claim that what was stolen were replicas and not the original coins, which were stored in safe custody some years ago.

The incident has left authorities baffled as the museum has security round the clock and CCTV surveillance. It is being presumed that the thief entered the secluded Bronze Gallery on Thursday and decamped, the museum being closed on Friday and the staff making the discovery only on Saturday.

The CCTV footage has been handed over to the police for further investigation, a senior official said.
