Which museum signs(19th Aug 2022) deal to return 7 ancient artefacts to India?
Louvre Museum
Van Gogh Museum
Scotland Museum

Correct Answer : Option (D) - Scotland Museum

Scotland Museums in the Scottish city of Glasgow on Friday(19th Aug 2022) signed an agreement with the Indian government to repatriate seven stolen artefacts to India.
Glasgow Life, a charitable organisation which runs the city's museums, had confirmed the handover earlier this year and the arrangement was formalised at a transfer of ownership ceremony at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in the presence of Acting Indian High Commissioner to the UK Sujit Ghosh.
The seven antiquities to now find their way back to India include a ceremonial Indo-Persian talwar or sword, believed to date back to the 14th century, and an 11th century carved stone door jamb taken from a temple in Kanpur.
We are delighted that our partnership with Glasgow Life has resulted in a decision to restitute Indian artefacts from Glasgow museums to India, said Ghosh..
