Unnao: After a day's break, the much-hyped "gold hunt" at the fort of Raja Rao Ram Bux Singh here resumed today, even as the Central government said the exercise is aimed at locating weapons used by Indians in the 1857 mutiny.





SDM Vijay Shanker Dubey said that 25 cm of digging was done today and with this, a total of 217 centimetres of excavation has been done so far.

A nail, broken bangles and some pottery has so far been recovered from the digging site.

Earlier today, Union Culture Minister Chandresh Kumari Katoch said the ASI is not digging for gold but trying to locate weapons used by Indians in the 1857 mutiny.

"We have a report from GSI saying that there is an alloy in this area. Alloy can be anything. I cannot say whether it is gold, silver or steel," Katoch said.
