CISF officials were successful in nabbing two Chinese nationalists at the Mumbai airport, who were trying to flee away from India after robbing diamond worth Rs. 34 lakhs. The diamonds were robbed at the recent India International Jewellery Show in Mumbai.

While trying to strike a deal, the two Chinese nationals had cleverly switched and replaced a diamond piece weighing 5.4 carats, approximately costing Rs. 34 lakhs, with a fake piece. Due to the swift action by Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) led to the Chinese nationals’ arrest at Mumbai airport. The diamond, worth Rs. 34 lakh, was recovered from a bottle of shampoo.
