Veteran actress and danseuse Hema Malini returned to the city on Sunday morning to be informed that her house at Gokuldham, Goregaon, had been broken into, and Rs 80 lakh in cash and jewellery stolen.
While thefts from celebrity homes are nothing new, it is the first time a burglary of such proportions has taken place in a high-profile home.
The Dindoshi police are now hot on the trail of one of the suspects, a Nepali watchman identified as Narendrakumar Udhnan Bisht, aged between 20 to 22 years. Bisht has been missing ever since the robbery came to light.
The stolen items included about Rs 75 lakh in cash and assorted jewellery including a gold waistband, diamond jewellery, bangles, gold chains and earrings totalling Rs 5 lakh.
A team of officers from the Dindoshi Police Station have already launched a massive manhunt for Bisht both in the country and in Nepal. Police revealed that Bisht was employed at the actor’s residence two and a half years ago.Among the items missing from actress Hema Malini’s Goregaon home are a gold waistband, diamond jewellery, bangles, gold chains and earrings totalling Rs 5 lakh (Pic: Nilesh Wairkar)
