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

    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.

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

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

    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.

    is any one complain about stealing valuable gem? if "yes" then worth consuming time to find it. if "NO" we all are fools. isn't it?

    Really.... Joke of the Day..

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

    The plot thickens for sure.

    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.

    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

    weha Tuesday, 11 September 2012 09:43 AM

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

    Notharismama Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:27 AM

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

    Lovesri Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:09 AM

    Let the Chinese swallow it again. :)

    Sri Lankaan Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:42 AM

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

    kan Wednesday, 12 September 2012 01:11 PM

    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.

    willows Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:54 AM

    we knew the results???

    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.

    Pxx Tuesday, 11 September 2012 05:57 AM

    An other drama under influence.

    Someone is covering this up.

    amare Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:22 AM

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

    bandara Tuesday, 11 September 2012 06:36 AM
