New Delhi, October 17, 2013:
The Government of India kicked off the “Gold Hunt” at Unnao fort in Uttar Pradesh district of India.
The treasure hunt follows Shobhan Sarkar’s dream that more 1000 ton gold is buried at the historical fort of Unnao. The sage wrote letters to the government officials and asked them to take out the gold, which could change fortunes for the country.
Swami Sarkar said that the gold belonged to Rao Ram Bux Singh, a King who ruled the province in the 19th century. The King, who was a great freedom fighter, was hanged in 1858 by the Britishers. Swami Sarkar claimed that the King himself came in his dream and asked him to take out the gold and merge it with nation’s gold reserves.
Following the dream, teams of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and Geological Survey of India (GSI) arrived at the fort. Swami Sarkar guided the officials and showed them the exact place where the gold is supposedly buried. The teams then drilled two holes at the place. Shockingly the drill hit something at about 64 foot(20 meters). Further tests confirmed that there are large deposits of a metal beneath the Earth.
With the gold yet to be discovered, fortunes have already changed for the villagers of the Daundia Khera province, the place where the hunt is taking place. The reporters from entire nation have camped up in the villager. Flocks of people are started arriving at the place turning it into a tourist spot. Following the crowd the government has made tight security arrangements and barricaded the place.
The ASI officials have said that it would take a week or a two to confirm the reality of the Sage’s dream. The ASI team began the hunt on early Friday morning by first praying at the ancient temple of Lord Shiva situated at the fort.
