Bollywood singer Mika Singh, through his manager, on Monday lodged a complaint at the Oshiwara Police Station here reporting a theft of around Rs 3 lakh at his Mumbai residence. According to the police, gold jewellery worth Rs 2 lakh and Rs 1 lakh were stolen from Mika's residence at around 2:00 PM.
Investigators are on the lookout for one of the singer’s aides who was seen entering and leaving the Enclave building in Oshiwara between 3 pm and 4 pm, when the theft allegedly occurred, in CCTV footage, according to a Mumbai Mirror report.
The suspect, Delhi native Ankit Vasan, 27, who used to help Mika organise his projects and live shows, had been working with the singer for over a decade. “His manager has informed us that they were unable to trace Ankit’s whereabouts following the theft on Sunday evening,” a police officer from Oshiwara police station was quoted as saying to the leading daily.
Police were informed that Vasan used to reside at Mika’s studio in Andheri and had unrestricted access to Mika’s apartment. “Even the building’s watchmen were familiar with the suspect and so, he was never stopped from entering or leaving the building,” the officer said.
When contacted, Sailesh Pasalwar, senior police inspector, Oshiwara police station, told Mirror, “A case under section 381(theft by clerk or servant) of the IPC has been registered against Ankit. We are trying to trace him.”
Meanwhile, Mika Singh recently said that he doesn't see himself as a superstar. He said: "I don't belong to the category of superstars. I have been in the industry for over 20 years, but I'm just a well-wisher of all the other stars. I believe it is easy to get stardom, but difficult to sustain in the industry."
Mika latest song was from the film Race 3 titled Party Chale On.
