Construction workers have hit a pot full of 200-year-old gold coins while digging an eight-foot hole to be used as a toilet close to an ancient temple in an Indian village.

According to Bangalore Mirror, the excavation crew found 43 coins inside the buried crock and instead of telling the person who hired them about the discovery, reburied it and told the homeowner that they were unable to finish the work that day.

Later that evening, the men returned to the site and recovered the buried treasure. Then they made their way to the nearby town of Chamarajanagar (Karnataka), taking the coins to a pawnbroker to determine their value.

The lender allegedly sent the workers away, telling them those coins were fake and hence worthless. BM reports the person proceeded to call the local police and inform them of the discovery of ancient coins by a few labourers.

Further digging in the neighbourhood unveiled another 50 gold coins.

Experts are yet to determine the period of the coins but according to sources quoted by The Times of India, most of them are from the late 18th century and early 19th century when this part of the country was under Hyder Ali — ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore.

It is unclear whether the workers may face charges. It is also uncertain if the Archaeology Survey of India will continue to check the area in search of more coins.

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) began gold digging for a fabled treasure in Daudiyakheda (Unnao), about 150 km from here, on Friday. But at the end of the day, there was no encouraging news about any precious metal or object being unearthed. What further dispirited the mediamen and thousands of curious onlookers from nearby villages was word from the officials that there was no clue of any treasure and the excavation could go on for a month.

However, the saint, Shobhan Sarkar, who reportedly had the divine vision or dream about 1,000 tonnes of gold being buried under the Daudiyakheda fort, has sparked off more sensation with the prediction of an even bigger gold deposit at another fort. In his letter to the district magistrate (DM) of Fatehpur, Sarkar has said that about 2,500 tonnes of gold was buried under a dilapidated 500-year-old fort in Adampur village of that district.

That’s not all. He has also written to the Kanpur DM to get a survey done for treasure in the Chaubeypur and Parade Ground areas of Kanpur. The saint, known to have divine powers, has also sent the related information to the Reserve Bank of India. To assert his credibility, he has even written in his letter that he is willing to make a deposit of Rs10 lakh. He has stated that the deposit be forfeited and legal action taken against him if the treasure is not found. “We are only doing our duty towards this country. We are not obliging anyone,” Swami OmJi Maharaj, one of the saint’s oldest disciples, told mediapersons. He asked curious journalists not to be in a hurry.
“You just wait and see, each and every word of his (Shobhan Sarkar’s) predictions will come true. He communicates with divine powers,” he asserted.

At the Daudiyakheda site, a 12-member ASI team headed by deputy director SP Mishra started digging at around 10 am after an elaborate havan and puja as directed by Sarkar. Sources said the mysterious saint who strictly shuns cameras and media attention had himself started the ‘puja’ at 4 am and left before other people arrived. About 20 labourers are engaged in the digging in a 30 square feet area marked by the ASI. The fort is heavily barricaded and guarded by a heavy deployment of police and PAC men. No one is being allowed near the excavation site.

ASI official SP Mishra told reporters that the entire exercise is likely to take about a month. “At this stage, I can not comment on whether there is any treasure buried here on not. But we are indeed hopeful of finding articles of historical value during the excavation,” he said.
