Golden Idol of ‘The Gorokhiya Dol’ stolen by suspected Bangladeshi

A large number of historical monuments are going to be extinct due to lack of proper maintenance by the Govt. and Archaeological Departments.

The historical Gorokhiya Dol situated in the bank of the Dikhow River at Nomati village of Nazira Sub-Division, Sivasagar District carries the sign of the glorious Ahom Kings.

The compound of this Dol is yet unfenced and it is surrounded by wild jungles. Now it become a safe shelter for the antisocial elements.

A few days earlier, some suspected Bangladeshis have stolen a golden idol from this Gorokhiya Dol of about 2 kg weight.

In our investigation it has come to the light that Mr. Lal Baj whose phone No. is 9854562276 and his brother-in-law Jamai, whose phone no. is 9854954647, both were living as tenants in the Nomati village of Nazira, have stolen the idol by digging inside the Gorokhiya Dol about 9 to 11 pm on last 13th August 2007 and fled to Tezpur.

Officials of the State Archaeological Dept. has visited the said place on last 25th August 2007, an investigation is going on in this matter.
