A labourer became a millionaire overnight when he unearthed three diamonds worth Rs 30-35 lakh at a diamond mine in Panna district of Madhya Pradesh, a senior official said on August 6.

While digging a shallow mine, the labourer, identified only as Subal, found three diamonds with net weight of 7.5 carat, Panna district’s diamond officer RK Pandey said.

Experts have valued the precious stones anywhere between Rs 30 lakh and Rs 35 lakh. The labourer has deposited the stones at the district diamond office and they will be auctioned as per government rules, Pandey said.

After deducting 12 percent tax, Subal will get the remaining sale proceeds, the official said.

A few days ago, another labourer had managed to find a 10.69 carat diamond from one of the mines in Panna in the Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh. Panna, otherwise located in a backward region, is famous for its diamond mines globally.
