A melee broke out on Saturday evening among the labourers and locals in Srinagar’s Shree Bhat area when the National Building Construction Corporation, digging a deep sewage, stumbled upon an earthen pot containing hundreds of coins.
“People mistook the coins for gold ones and started looting them to make quick bucks. Most labourers and the locals have them now,” deputy director archives M S Zahid told the HT.
