Only Buddhist manuscript found in India?

This BBC article claims that the Saddharmapuṇḍarīkasūtra discovered in the Gilgit find & dateable to 4-500 CE, is not only the oldest Buddhist literature to have ever been found in India, but also the only Buddhist scripture to have ever been found in India.

This strikes me as misleading, to say the least. Thoughts?

You’d think the BBC would, at minimum, check Wikipedia before saying something like that, but no.

Depending on how you define “India”, there’s quite a lot of manuscripts from the region.
