Indian government vows to bring back the ‘Kohinoor’

21 april 2016

The Indian government on April 19 said that it would make all possible efforts to bring back the Kohinoor diamond in an amicable manner, while emphasising that it had achieved the return of several artefacts, according to a Times of India report.
On April 18, however, the Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar appearing for the government had told the Supreme Court that India should not stake claim to the famed US $200 million Kohinoor diamond as "it was neither stolen nor forcibly taken away”.
A day after solicitor general’s comment, the Indian government rushed to clarify that the law officer's remarks could not be interpreted as the government's stand.
The ministry added, “The solicitor general informed the court about the history of the diamond and gave an oral statement on the basis of the existing references.” The government said it would make its final submission on the issue of getting back the Kohinoor diamond in the Supreme Court in six weeks.”
