RAPAPORT... Asian Star, a Mumbai-based diamond manufacturer, reported profit dropped in the past fiscal year even as revenue rose.

Net profit declined 11 percent to $10.7 million (INR 725.5 million) even as sales edged up 2.5 percent to $488.7 million in the 12 months to March 31, the company, which is a De Beers sightholder, said.
