Earlier, Pakistani media had reported that the city police had sealed an area in Pakistan’s Multan after some treasures were discovered in Malkhana’s Katcheri premises.

The revelation was made when the district administration contractors demolished a portion of Malkhana and dug the ground to erect a new building in connection with extension in district courts.

It was reported that the city district administration had written two letters to the Punjab Archaeology Department and the Punjab chief secretary to dispatch experts to establish the treasure’s archaeological value.
