Cash amounting to Rs. 1.2 crores was stolen from Satish Kaushik’s residence, the actor-filmmaker said in a complaint to the police.
Mr. Kaushik lodged the complaint on late Sunday at the Versova police station. An official from the station said: “Last night (Sunday night) at around 8:30 pm, Satish and his wife lodged a complaint. Around Rs. 1.2 crores cash has been stolen from his residence. The investigation is going on right now.”
Satish Kaushik had received the cash on May 16 for his creative work, and he planned to deposit the sum at a bank on Monday. He had briefly left it in his living room when it was stolen, said a source close to him.
The source also said that they suspect that Sajan Kumar, a house help, picked up the bag containing the cash and fled the house in the afternoon when Kaushik’s wife went to the restroom.
Sajan Kumar is absconding, according to the source. Mr. Kaushik remained unavailable for comment.
