India regains 250 antiquities following searches

On October 28, India has regained 250 antiquities from the U.S. authorities probing a stolen art scheme. The materials were worth $15 million, including a bronze Shiva Nataraja of $4 million value.

They were handed over to the Indian Consulate in New York City after searches by the Manhattan district attorney's office and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The probe targeted Indian American dealer Subhash Kapoor for smuggling numerous antiquities, allegations he had denied.
