An ancient Buddhist monastery in Taxila, Pakistan, has been looted and damaged badly in the process. “Two or three” small statues of Buddha may have been stolen.
It has been learnt that the police were informed by the local people about illegal digging and excavations and a police party reached the spot but did not stop the illegal activity.
Also, the sub-divisional police officer and SHO Hazro also reached the site and arrested 15 diggers but freed all of them after two hours without taking any legal action against them.
