Filmmaker Ekta Kapoor has filed a complaint with Juhu Police after Rs. 60,000 of the Rs. 1.5 lakh cash went missing from her handbag on Saturday.
The complaint has been registered under Section 379 of IPC but no one has been arrested. 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, confirmed the developments, “It could be the handiwork of someone working in her Juhu bungalow. The accused will be arrested soon.”
The report adds that five people have been questioned about the incident including the driver and domestic help. Another source said, “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.”
