Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, June 9

Heritage furniture of Chandigarh will once again go under the hammer on the foreign land. This time, the heritage items will be auctioned in New Zealand.

The auction will be held by an auction house in Auckland on June 25. The furniture which is going to be auctioned includes chairs created by architect Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret valued between 13.87 lakh and 18.50 lakh.

Ajay Jagga, a social activist, has written a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah for initiating an inquiry as to why the heritage items were sold as junk or scrap, causing huge loss to the government.

He said despite a ban by the Ministry of Home Affairs, two items of Chandigarh were to be auctioned in Auckland.
