Kailash Satyarthi’s nobel peace prize stolen from home, second time in India


    With education standards cruising higher and better employment opportunities, theft and perfidy should cease to exist. But the stark reality is that theft, burglary and perfidy still remain an internal part of our social system. We cannot deny it. We can change it. We can change people’s mindests of not extorting or stealing things form others but earning it with their own might.

    Recently, Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi‘s south Delhi house was burgled. His precious certificate of Nobel Prize was stolen from his residence, among other things which went missing last night. .

    Satyarthi was not in his Alaknanda flat when the robbery took place as he is currently in the US. The giving legend had treasured his original Nobel medallion at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, as he believed the award must be dedicated to the country.

    Satyarthi’s son Bhuvan Ribhu, who is also a senior Supreme Court lawyer, filed a police complaint today morning after he found the front gates of Satyarthi’s house broken. An FIR under Section 380 (house theft) of the IPC has been filed. Police has initiated an investigation based on fingerprints lifted from the affected zone.

    Kailash Satyarthi shared his award with Malala Yousafzai who is another renowned Education and social activist in Pakistan. Kailash is not only the notable founder of Bachpan Bachao Andolan, but also is a children’s rights and education activist.

    Kailash boasts of a degree in electrical engineering and a post-graduate diploma in high-voltage engineering. Through his organization Bachpan Bachao Andolan, Satyarthi has freed over 80,000 children from various facets of servitude and made possible human rehabilitation.

    Well, what’s more surprising is the fact that wrong-doing of stealing Nobel Peace prizes had already commenced when Rabindranath Tagore’s Nobel prize was stolen from the Visva Bharati University museum in March 2004. More hard to believe is the fact that the stolen Nobel prize was never recovered.
