Mirpur treasure hunt called off

The hunt for “hidden treasure” at a house in Dhaka's Mirpur-10 has been called off after no trace of metal was found there.

The digging began on July 21 for the much-talked about “hidden treasure”, reportedly buried under a one-storey house in Mirpur during the 1971 Liberation War.

The search was called off yesterday after two separate teams of experts from Geological Survey of Bangladesh and Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet), in presence of district administration officials of Dhaka, found no trace of metallic objects buried under the house using GPR Scanner, Dadan Fakir, officer-in-charge of Mirpur Police Station, told The Daily Star.

The tests were conducted between 1:00pm to 4:00pm yesterday, said the OC.

The house became a talk of the city as locals and enthusiasts thronged the area during the excavation work and even for the last couple of days. Four policemen were kept on guard at the house since July 21 in connection with the hunt for “hidden treasure”.
