Chikkamagaluru: The cybercrime, economic offences, and narcotics (CEN) officials have arrested two people for conning a man from Shivamogga by promising to buy a precious gem from him and then decamping with it.

Police officials have recovered an ancient gem worth between Rs 50 lakh and 1 crore. The gem is a 510.60 carat certified, cat eye gemstone.

As per the complaint, the gemstone was gifted by a member of the royal family to the victim. The accused reportedly cheated the man by promising to buy the gem from him but later fled with it.
