LARGE DIAMOND POSSIBLY WORTH OVER $7M ‘MISSING’ FROM INDIA’S PANNA DISTRICT
24 August 2015
A large diamond, possibly worth around US$7.47 million (Rs 500 million) has been reported missing from India's Panna district in Madhya Pradesh, which is known for its shallow open pit diamond mines, reports the Times of India.

Madhya Pradesh law minister Kusum Mehdele has, in a letter to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, requested an inquiry into the matter, reports TOI. In the letter, the Minister reportedly accuses a mine lease holder of conspiring with a former diamond officer to illegally sell off the diamond, which, by law  was supposed to be deposited with the Diamond Officer's office for valuation before being auctioned by the Diamond Office, and cannot be sold on the open market.

The Minister also reportedly alleged in her letter that some police officers were also involved and demanded the registration of a First Information Report [complaint], according to the new source.

"It is difficult to curb illegal mining in Panna," said Mehdele in an interview with reporters, as quoted by the news source. "Diamonds are even found lying in rivers. One can keep account of diamonds mined legally."
