A gold-plated Quran Sharif has been recovered from Rajasthan, India during the time of the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Local police have arrested a man at that time. The detained man has told police that the Quran was being smuggled into Bangladesh.

According to a report by the Rajasthan Police, the BBC Bangla reported that gold made Quran Sharif worth Rs 16 crore was being smuggled into Bangladesh. However, it was recovered.

According to the report, the Quran Sharif 1thousand and 14 gold pages, was snatched by three persons last year. Police arrested the two suspects at the time. A third person, including the Quran Sharif, was arrested last Thursday.

Deputy Commissioner of Jaipur North Police Rajiv Pachar told BBC Bangla that Yogendra Singh Mehta, a resident of Bhilwara district, had complained to police over the robbery of a very valuable Quran Sharif.

The complainant said Mehta's ancestors received the Quran Sharif written in gold from the historic Mandalgarh fort donated by Emperor Akbar. Then with the help of friends and relatives, Mehta was trying to sell it.

Rajab Pachar also said that the Quran Sharif was taken away during the sale. Two men were later arrested but the Quran Sharif was not found. However, several days ago the police found out that a person was trying to sell the gold made Quran Sharif. Police formed a special investigation team. Later, Police arrested Bhawari Mina with the Quran Sharif in a customer disguise.
