: A 29-year-old man employed at a city-based jewellery firm was arrested for allegedly misappropriating its gold and diamond jewellery, police said Monday.
G Vivek, a sales executive, misappropriated gold and diamond jewellery weighing about 4 kg by submitting fake bills as if it was delivered to different shops and showrooms, police said based on a complaint lodged by the firm's owner.
