India, Aust in talks over stolen Shiva

Updated: 00:13, Tuesday March 25, 2014

The Indian government has demanded Australia return a dancing Shiva statue reportedly stolen from an Indian temple and now on display in a gallery in Canberra.

The National Gallery of Australia bought the statue in 2007 from New York dealer Subhash Kapoor who has been charged with trafficking stolen antiquities and was extradited back to India in 2011, the ABC reports.

His case is still before Indian courts.
