A 15-year-old boy who is a son of a watchman returned the packet which contained 700-carat diamonds worth Rs 40 lakh to his rightful owner in Surat. Vishal Upadhyay, a student of Class XI was playing cricket at the diamond street on August 15 when he found the bag which had diamonds.

For his honesty, Vishal who is a resident of  Jadakhadi in Mahidhapura was felicitated with a cash prize of Rs 30,000 by Mansukh Savaliya, owner of the diamonds and was given Rs 11,000 by Surat Diamond Association (SDA) president Babu Gujarati on Saturday.

“I am so indebted to the young boy for returning my diamond packet. It would have been a big loss, had I not found the packet. I would have to sell my house to repay my creditors. The boy saved me and my family”, said Mansukh Savaliya. He added that he went through CCTV footage and narrowed down his area of search.
