We can't order UK to return Kohinoor: SC
The Supreme Court on Friday said that it cannot pass an order to bring back the Kohinoor diamond which is in the possession of the United Kingdom or say that they should not auction it.
 
Dismissing off the petition by the All India Human Rights and Social Justice seeking direction for bringing back the diamond, a bench headed by Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar observed this.
 
Khehar said: "We are quite surprised how can an Indian court pass an order to bring something which is in the UK."
 
The bench further said: "Can we say England should not auction some property."
 
The court said this as the petitioner NGO sought direction that the UK should not auction the diamond. 
 
Disposing off the petition, the bench also said that it was satisfied with the government's response that it was making efforts to get the diamond back.
