On the 5th, a faction robbed the diamond and the gemstones from an authorized vendor in Araliyapura area in Arawwala – Maharagama.

The businessman had been looking for a buyer to purchase the diamond and gemstones for almost two years when the robbers had visited the businessman’s residence through an Australian national.
