    I already commented on this that he must have swallowed fake one. If it was real one, then he would have died within few hours after swallowing.

    Looks like an episode out of the television series hustle

    Gamaraala Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:17 PM

    We should have known this was a ploy to divert to attention..

    Full marks to Mewan for the excellent analysis, just like a detective. For all what we know, the genuine original diamond is already smuggled out of the country and this Chinese man will go scot-free. An excellent plot for a Hollywood movie like "Thomas Crown Affairs", "Topkapi" etc.

    Ishan Tuesday, 11 September 2012 10:53 AM

    Well, i guess it all depends on who was around when it came out...

    weha Tuesday, 11 September 2012 09:43 AM

    The only thing Chinese no to do is make cheap imitation stuff. so no wonder,

    azeez Tuesday, 11 September 2012 09:29 AM

    Chinese are smart to make fake things...may be he swallowed the original and some thing in his body made a fake one and put it out :D

    Silva de Mervin Tuesday, 11 September 2012 09:11 AM

    One rupee or 100 million rupees theft it theft.

    When he swallow, he does not know it is fake and so intention is clear.

    sanju de silva Tuesday, 11 September 2012 08:58 AM

    The plot thickens for sure.

    sanjeewalk Tuesday, 11 September 2012 08:31 AM

    Really.... Joke of the Day..

    Abdul Tuesday, 11 September 2012 08:49 AM

    Chinese thief tried to exchange the fake one with an original which was exhibited, in the melee he swallowed what he brought, end of the story

    Notharismama Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:27 AM

    Here we go! The plot thickens. Another saga like the museum robbery.

    Mewan Tuesday, 11 September 2012 08:16 AM

    Why can't anyone figure this out? This man had fake diamonds on his person when he was arrested. He stole the real diamond and gave it to his friend who ran away. Then he swallowed a fake diamond he had knowing that the attention would be up on him and letting his friend get away with the real one. Once the diamond is got out of his system he knows that no charges could be filed against him. Ironically it is the gem trader who is in trouble now for displaying fake diamonds or trying to sell them as real, when in fact he has lost a real diamond.

    bandara Tuesday, 11 September 2012 08:15 AM

    They do. Gem merchant is the culprit. Release the innocent Chinese guy immediately. Investigate the gem merchant and fine for lying and faking.

    liyo Tuesday, 11 September 2012 07:37 AM

    made me laugh :D

    Sagara Tuesday, 11 September 2012 07:32 AM

    The Chinese has brought in several fake diamonds and swallowed one of them. ( And a pig started to fly)

    bandara Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:36 AM

    Who displays fake diamonds in an International Gems and Jewellery shows? Something fishy?

    amare Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:22 AM

    Here we go again. Somebody has replaced the original diamond with a fake.

    Sorry dot com Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:18 AM

    Someone is covering this up.

    Pxx Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:57 AM

    An other drama under influence.

    Sammy Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:07 AM

    Then the owner must be arrested for exhibiting fake diamonds. It cannot be that a genuine diamond would have become fake with the interaction of stomach juices upon it.

    willows Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:54 AM

    we knew the results???

    Sri Lankaan Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:42 AM

    Chines guys are smart. where is the original? well planed...

    Lovesri Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:09 AM

    Let the Chinese swallow it again. :)
