Television queen and film producer Ekta Kapoor has registered a complaint with the Juhu police last Saturday as a big amount of Rs 60,000 goes missing from her handbag. The producer had kept Rs 1.5 lakh cash in her handbag out of which Rs 60,000 were missing. The moment she found out, she filed a complaint. The cops have registered a case under section 379 of IPC but no one has been arrested so far.
In her complaint, Ekta Kapoor has mentioned that she had kept the cash in her handbag last week. According to the report in Mid-Day, a source revealed, "On Saturday, when she lifted her bag, it felt lighter. On counting the cash, she realized that Rs 60,000 was missing. She approached the Juhu police station and filed a complaint." Confirming the incident, 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."
Reportedly, a team of three officers has been formed to investigate the matter. The cops have questioned five people, including the driver and domestic help. "We haven't given clean chit to anyone yet. If need be, they will be called for questioning again," the source added. It further stated, “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."
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.
