Janak, a businessman in Kalanwali, further explained that his wife and daughter-in-law came back from a wedding and had kept the ornaments in a bowl in the kitchen, “My aged mother cut some vegetables and used the same bowl to discard the leftovers’’.

With over lakhs of worth in the bull’s stomach, Raj, for the safety of the gold plans to send the bull to a cowshed with a family member, with the hope that a worker at the cowshed will find the ornaments and return them.
