Treasure hunt suspended in India

  • Officials in India decided to end the search for treasure under a fort after failing to find the gold as predicted by Hindu Swami Shobhan Sarkar. 

    Sarkar told the government about his dream, in which the former king informed him of a treasure worth $50B. The search began on Oct. 18 and the digging costed the government $25,300. 

    The Geological Survey of India previously mentioned it located heavy metal nearly 66 feet beneath the fort but reports suggest it was an error. 

    The leader of the dig said there isn't any indication"of any alloy as reported by the GSI team."
