Puzzle No 132: At least once Diagonal

Puzzle idea is from Ramesh. I kind of liked the idea and so attempted to create one sudoku of it. I have focused more on the theme rather than difficulty but I hope you will still enjoy it.

Place numbers in the grid such that each row, column, and 3*3 box contain the numbers 1-9. Additionally, digits outside the grid and adjacent to the arrow lies at least once in the cells pointed by that arrow. 

Theme: 1-9

Difficulty: Medium
