US museum ready to return stolen Ganesha

M Kalyanaraman,TNN | Mar 18, 2014,

CHENNAI: A Ganesha idol at the Toledo Museum of Art that was likely stolen from the Sivan temple in Ariyalur in central Tamil Nadu may well find its way back soon.

The US museum that bought the idol from alleged art thief Subhash Kapoor, who was extradited to India and is currently being tried, is ready to return the statue if there's reasonable evidence to prove its origin.
