UPDATE: Gandhi Gear Auction Cancelled! UPDATE: Maybe Not! UPDATE: Gandhi Gear Sold for $1.8M! And Going Back to India
Update to update: Antiquorum will auction the items whether Otis likes it or not, says one of our most trusted sources, the Zimbabwe Star. Update cubed: It suddenly occurred to us that we could call Antiquorum ourselves! They say the auction's still on, and the Gandhi items will be up between 3 and 4 p.m.
Mega-update: Monsters and Critics says the gear has been sold for $1.8 million. You all know the next step: war!
The happy ending: The buyer is Vijay Mallya, chairman of the UB Group, which runs Kingfisher Airlines and United Breweries, and his agent says he "will donate them to India for public display." Crisis averted!
