VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE OSCAR NOMINEES
According to police, Juhi and her husband Jai Mehta had hosted a party at their south Mumbai residence at Veer Bhavan on January 15 for which around 40 people were hired as caterers and housekeeping staff in the party. Among others, an American had also attended the party.
"The American guest, one Miss Chulie, was allotted two servants and the key of Chulie's room was only with Chulie and her servants," said senior inspector Vinay Bagade of the Malabar Hill Police station. A complaint was lodged saying that a laptop, a mobile phone and an iPod of Chulie were missing, he said.
"After the theft was reported we asked the contractor who organised the party to provide the list of the 40 people who were hired and later we zeroed in on the accused Sandeep Balerao (28) with his help," Bagade said adding that all the missing gadgets have been recovered. "Balerao said that he committed to the crime since he had to pay some dues," the officer said.
Balerao has been remanded in police custody till February 17.
