In yet another auction of heritage items from the city, two artefacts designed by Pierre Jeanneret were sold for Rs14.4 lakh at an auction in France today.

An office table and a file rack were auctioned by Cornette de Saint-Cyr, Paris, France, on December 17 for Rs8.1 lakh and Rs6.3 lakh, respectively.

In a letter, Ajay Jagga, member, Heritage Protection Cell, Chandigarh, requested S Jaishankar, Union Minister of External Affairs, to look into the matter so that a formal network can be set up to stop the auction of the heritage of the nation.
