Birbhum/Kolkata, Aug 4 (IBNS): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said during an event at Bolpur in West Bengal's Birbhum district that she could find out Rabindranath Tagore's stolen Nobel Prize medal, if given a chance to investigate.

Banerjee on Thursday afternoon joined an cultural event at Shantiniketan's Lipika auditorium during her maiden visit to Visva Bharati University.

During her speech there, she said: "I know that the CBI is investigating the theft of Rabindranath Tagore's Nobel Prize medal. If given chance to hold probe into the matter, I will find it out."

Earlier in 2004, country's first Nobel Prize, won by Rabindranath Tagore for Geetanjali in 1913, was stolen from Visva Bharati University's museum and it's still untraceable, twelve years after the theft.
