Ekta Kapoor files police complaint
A source told mid-day, “On Saturday, when she lifted her bag, it felt lighter. On counting the cash, she realised that Rs 60,000 was missing. She approached the Juhu police station and filed a complaint.”
Dattatray Pandurang Bhargude, Assistant Commissioner of Police, said, “It could be the handiwork of someone working in her Juhu bungalow. The accused will be arrested soon.”
Another source told mid-day that a team of 3 officers are investigating the matter and the cops have questioned 5 people including driver and domestic help. “We haven’t given clean chit to anyone yet. If need be, they will be called for questioning again. The addresses and bank account details of the five suspects have been taken on record. We will scan these details to find out whether the stolen cash has been deposited in any of these accounts. Or, whether they have given the cash to any of their relatives,” the source said.
An officer privy to the probe said, “All the suspects who have been quizzed in the case have denied their involvement.” He also said CCTV footages were being scanned to find out if any outsider entered her bungalow to commit the offence.
