He has a business of Emerald stone in Afghanistan. On 26th July 2019, he came to India for selling Emerald on invitation of a person.

After three days, Gulam came back and told that he has sold small Emerald @ Rs. 5,000/- per caret and gave only 7 lakh rupees to him and assured to give remaining amount very soon. He again took 2,210 caret big Emerald @ Rs.15,000-16,000/- per caret.

After 2-3 days, Gulam came and stated that he has sold all Emerald @ Rs. 8,000/- per caret and gave only Rs. 10 lakh for big Emerald and assured to give remaining amount in 15 days. Gulam was contacted various times to return either Emerald or amount but he never did so. He came to know that Gulam was telling a lie and he never sold his Emerald to anyone and made him fool. He started negotiating with Gulam to return the Emerald/amount.
