Bhadrak, Apr 3: Silvers coins of 18th century of the British era were found while digging a septic tank at Sodha village under Dhamnagar block in the district today.
According to the locals, some labourers were digging a pit for septic tank for Mahendra Panda’s new house in the village. After digging about 8 feet, they found a brass container which had several silver coins of British era inside it.
After this information broke out, many residents of the village gathered at Mahendra’s house for having a glimpse of the silver coins. “We suspect that our ancestors have buried the silver coins at that time,” said a family member.
