Nobel Peace Prize laureates Kailash Satyarthi (R) and Malala Yousafzai (L) pose with their medals during the Nobel Peace Prize awards ceremony at the City Hall in Oslo December 10, 2014.

New Delhi: Child Activist Kailash Satyarthi’s Nobel Prize replica along with other valuable items including jewellery went missing from his South Delhi house.

Thieves broke into Satyarthi’s – who is in Panama – apartment in Alaknanda and decamped with the valuable items.

The matter was first reported to the police by a dry cleaner after he found the door open with no one responded to his repeated calls.

Satyarthi, a child rights-education activist and the founder of the Bachpan Bachao Andolan, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, which he shared with Pakistan’s Malala Yousafzai.

A complaint has been lodged and a massive investigation is underway.

On March 25, 2004, Rabindra Nath Tagore’s Nobel medallion and 47 other memorabilia including his gold watch went missing from Uttarayan complex of Visva Bharati University in Shantiniketan.

Tagore had received the Nobel Prize in 1931 for literature.
