NEW DELHI: A replica of the Nobel Peace Prize and its citation awarded to child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi were among the valuables stolen from his southeast Delhi residence on Tuesday.

In a statement, Satyarthi, who is currently in Panama with his wife, implored the people involved in the early morning act to understand the significance of the award and not get carried away by its monetary value.

Satyarthi had presented his Nobel Peace Prize medal to President Pranab Mukherjee in January, 2015. The original medal has been preserved and is now on display at the Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum, his office said.

Police said the matter came to light when Rakesh Sengar of Satyarthi’s NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan went to take his car from the activist’s Kalkaji residence around 9 am.

“The replica of the nobel, which is as good as the original, and the citation are missing along with a host of other mementos,” Sengar said.
