A limited-edition Hublot watch valued at KSh 225 million that was stolen from football legend Diego Maradona has been recovered by police in India, a year after his demise.
Assam state police, through Director General Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta, made the announcement on Twitter calling it "an act of international cooperation."
The Argentinian footballer lost the watch, which bears his initials, logo, and famous number 10 jersey, while in his Dubai residence.
Apart from the watch, other items recovered in the raid comprise memorabilia like shoes, clothes, Ipads and watches.
Watch recovered in India
NDTV India reports that information received from the Dubai police led to the raid conducted in Sibsagar in Assam after which the luxury watch was recovered from the suspect's residence.
In the tweet, Mahanta shared details about the suspect named Wazid Hussein, adding that he was a security guard for a company charged with storing the late footballer's belongings.
It emerged that a few days into the job, the suspect requested permission from his employer to go back to India to take care of his ailing father.
"Follow up lawful action is being taken," Assam state's Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma added.
Maradona died in 2020 of heart failure
Maradona died in November 2020 at the age of 60 after battling heart failure, two weeks after he left the hospital where he underwent surgery for a blood clot in his brain.
The Argentine legend cemented his name in the books of football history after helping his country achieve victory at the 1986 World Cup.
His fame would be dealt a blow when he got into alcoholism and addiction a few years later, something he struggled to shake out of to his demise.
