Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj statue hacked at the feet & stolen from a Californian park: US

A statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was hacked at the feet and stolen from a park in America’s San Jose. Activist Sarah Gates notes that the entire idol was simply carted away without anyone noticing it. According to locals, no one was caretaking at the park thereby allowing the miscreants to get away with the theft. The incident took place about a couple of days ago.

As per reports, authorities are investigating the matter and have asked people to come forward with any information they have in this regard. San Jose Parks and Recreation said it was noticed on Friday (February 3) that the statue was missing from Guadalupe River Park but the officials did not say when it was stolen. It was a gift from Pune, San Jose’s sister city in Bharat.

A video by a social media user named Californian Marathi, who visited the park a few years back, highlighted the neglected state the park and the statue were in. He rued that not many were aware of the place.

“The situation of the statue is really bad, the horse’s tail is broken. There are homeless people around. One guy is living in a tent mounted in front of the statue. There is no way for anyone to go near it. He had a lot of stuff scattered in front of and around the statue. India’s national flag is also hosted nearby but without any proper care. This place needs attention, supervision and restoration. No one would visit this place with family”, he says.
