Gandhi's glasses missing from Wardha ashram

Ashram president M.M. Gadkari said its employees were asked to keep silent about the missing glasses. "We had made a list of the belongings of Gandhiji that were placed in the hut where he used to stay," Gadkari told IANS.

"Somehow, the glasses were not included in the list. Those who cleaned the hut took a few days to realise that the glasses are missing," he added.

The ashram authorities are yet to register a police complaint. "We have not received any theft or missing complaint," Wardha Deputy Superintendent of Police M.G. Nale told IANS.
When questioned on why a complaint was not registered, Gadkari said that the board of trustees will meet and decide on further action.

"Gandhiji's other belongings are, however, intact," Gadkari said. Mahatma Gandhi came to Wardha, 75 km from Nagpur, in 1936 and settled at the ashram, which receives around 300,000 visitors every year.
