National Gallery of Australia defends practices despite admitting it may have been conned into buying stolen Indian art

The National Gallery of Australia's (NGA) director says he will not return millions of dollars worth of antiquities to India unless there is further proof they have been stolen.

Ron Radford has admitted the gallery might have been conned by a New York dealer, Subhash Kapoor, whom Interpol has called the world's biggest commodity smuggler.
