Solitaire - - CONTENTS -

The Gem & Jew­ellery Ex­port Pro­mo­tion Coun­cil (GJEPC) fe­lic­i­tated the Cen­tral In­dus­trial Se­cu­rity Force (CISF) for its ef­forts in ar­rest­ing two Chi­nese na­tion­als who stole di­a­monds at the re­cently held In­dia In­ter­na­tional Jew­ellery Show (IIJS). The two Chi­nese na­tion­als were ar­rested the same day at the Mum­bai air­port, while try­ing to flee from In­dia.

GJEPC chair­man Praveen­shankar Pandya ap­plauded CISF se­nior com­man­dant Hi­man­shu Pandey and CISF deputy com­man­dant A.K. Nag for nab­bing the two thieves for al­legedly steal­ing di­a­monds worth R34 lakh.

Ad­dress­ing the gath­er­ing at the fe­lic­i­ta­tion cer­e­mony on Au­gust 18th, Pandya noted that the GJEPC has been fac­ing sev­eral chal­lenges, in­clud­ing ‘en­try’ and ‘exit’ of dig­ni­taries at the event, which at­tracts around 5,000 to 6,000 vis­i­tors per day. “While we rely on CISF on se­cu­rity, our of­fi­cials need to work harder to im­prove var­i­ous fa­cil­i­ties at the five-day ex­hi­bi­tion and bring it at par with global standards,” he added.

Pandya noted that the GJEPC was pleased to be as­so­ci­ated with CISF, a na­tional se­cu­rity or­gan­i­sa­tion that is me­thod­i­cal and pro­fes­sional in its ap­proach.

Speak­ing at the event, Pandey said, “It has been an hon­our for CISF to be as­so­ci­ated with IIJS, one of the world’s most re­spected jew­ellery trade shows, for the past 10 years. Over the years, with the help of tech­nol­ogy, sur­veil­lance lev­els have been im­proved dras­ti­cally.”

Com­ment­ing about the theft in­ci­dent at IIJS 2017, he added, “There was mul­ti­level co-or­di­na­tion with var­i­ous agen­cies and I con­grat­u­late GJEPC’s CCTV sur­veil­lance team and the Mum­bai Po­lice for their sup­port in ar­rest­ing the two Chi­nese cul­prits at the Mum­bai air­port.”
