Actor Satish Kaushik lodged a complaint at the Versova Police Station on Sunday, after he found that Rs 1,25,50,000 was missing from the locker of his Versova residence.
A police official from the Versova police station informed “Last night at around 8:30 p.m, Satish and his wife lodged a complaint. Around Rs 1.25 crore cash has been stolen from his residence. The investigation is going on right now”
Sources say, Kaushik had received Rs 1.25 crore in cash on May 16, for his creative work (acting or direction). He had planned to deposit the money at a bank on Monday. He had briefly left it in a locker of his living room when it was stolen.
There are reports that Kaushik suspects his house help Sajan Kumar, who is now absconding, to have picked up the bag containing the cash and fled the house in the afternoon when Kaushik’s wife went to the restroom.
“We have registered a complaint against Kumar. Kaushik had not registered his details with us before employing him. One of his other helps had once clicked a picture of Kumar using his cellphone, but when we checked it, we could not find it. Kumar may have deleted it. A probe is on” said senior inspector Harishchandra Parmale.
