Noida Police on Thursday arrested five persons and recovered an antique idol worth about Rs 5 crore from them. The Ashtadhatu (made from eight metal alloys) statue of a Nagkanya weighs 2.5 kgs. Police also seized two Indica cars from them. The kingpin of the racket,which smuggles rare artifacts to Europe,is absconding.
