Vastavam web: Karnataka GOvernmwent has directed concerned departments to hunt for hidden treasure ofancient kingdom. Tales of hidden treasure have been told to us in different forms. Be it thestories of our grand ma, films or fiction books, it makes us crave for wealth that we never knew existed. 29-year- old Pradyumna Yadav, who claims to be a descendant of the Sri Kirisomeshwara kingdom, wrote to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah about his dream of two secret bungalows holding untold wealth within its six rooms. What more baffling is that the
principal secretary took notice of the letter and wrote to Department of Archaeology, Museums and Heritage, to ascertain the claim. Apparently, only way to check its veracity would be to go on a hunt. In his letter Yadav said, the Kingdom was established 700 years ago. Parts of this vast kingdom, he claims, are Karnataka now. However, 300 years ago, apparently, the kingdom faced invasion from outsiders. It was then that a clever king hid all his wealth in six rooms. Now he has been seeing the wealth in his dreams, he claimed. He requested the government to dig up the treasure and to use it for state development.
