Two 100 years old revolvers and sword's sheath stolen from Baroda museum
When Baroda Museum shutters were down for Diwali break between Thursday and Saturday, some burglars broke into the museum and robbed two antique revolvers and a sheath of a sword. The revolver were around 10 decades old and the sword sheath was carved with golden work.
"The latch of the glass case on the ground floor was broken and burglars took away a 0.41 revolver and a 0.45 revolver. The revolver sheaths behind were left behind. Also the sheath of a sword kept in the case too has been stolen," said Vijay Patel, curator at the museum as reported by Times of India.

The number of people involved in burgling such antiques still lay uncertain. The burglars also attempted to break the another glass cupboard, but failed in their endevaour.

The theft was only discovered after the museum authorities opened the museum yesterday morning. "The seal on the main door was intact and there are no signs of breaking in anywhere in the museum. As of now, we have learnt that the accused broke open a window on in the Nepalese gallery of the museum to escape," said joint police commissioner, D J Patel.
