US probe says Mehul Choksi is likely to be selling lab-grown diamonds in US

A probe ordered by a US bankruptcy court has allegedly revealed that fugitive Mehul Choksi's firm in US, Samuels Jewelers Inc., may have been selling lab-grown diamonds to the customers by falsely certifying them as natural stones. This was being done by Choksi secretly through a British Virgin Islands firm. Also, it is alleged that he received nearly $20 mn from the fake Letters of Undertaking issued to Gitanjali by PNB.
