NEW DELHI (Diya TV) — Indian social activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi’s home was burglarized this week, authorities said, and the replica of his Nobel Peace Prize was one of the many keepsakes the intruders made away with.

Satyarthi has been away attending the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in the U.S., the burglary was discovered by his staff that stayed behind in India. Per protocol, his actual Nobel is kept at the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

“The lock of my house was broken and my certificate and a replica medal were taken along with a few other things. We are still assessing what is missing,” he told BBC. No one can predict when something like this will happen. After an incident like this, adding safety precautions and changing the locks on the doors may be something worth considering, especially to prevent intruders from entering the home. With this being said, even if it means doing a quick google search into something like locksmith Melbourne, for example, this is a step in the right direction when it comes to securing the house.

The activist is most known for his founding of the ‘Bachpan Bachao Andolan’ (BBA), an organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of child workers who have been exploited and the eradication of child labor. A First Information Report under Section 380 (house theft) of the country’s penal code has been filed, and police said they are actively searching for the intruders.

Satyarthi was awarded the Nobel in 2014 for his work combatting child labor and trafficking in his home country. He shared the award with Pakistani child education activist Malala Yousafzai.

Satyarthi’s certificate was among the stolen items.

The incident has drawn the anxiety of several Delhi residents back to the surface.

Last year, several priceless mementos, including idols and “copper Gandhi glasses” gifted by the Prime Minister, were stolen from Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s home.
