PANNA, 22 JULY. A 10.69 carat diamond, with an estimated value of Rs 50 lakh, was unearthed in a mine in Madhya Pradesh's Panna district. Anandilal Kushwaha (35), who has a lease of a mine in Ranipur area, has deposited a 10.69 carat diamond with the local diamond office (Hira Karyalaya), Panna's diamond officer R K Pandey said. Mr Kushwaha had also recently deposited a 70-cent diamond, he said, adding that this is the first big find after the coronavirus-induced lockdown was eased in the district. The precious stone will be auctioned and the proceeds will be given to the depositor after deducting government royalty and taxes, the official said.
