Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan faces trouble as his employees stolen 11 split air-conditioners from his production house’s franchise at 26th Road in Khar.
According to police, two of Saif’s employees were arrested by Khar police in case of stealing 11 ACs from the office.
The Khar police reveals that on Wednesday night, the manager of Saif Ali Khan’s home production, Illuminati Films, approached them and complained that the air-conditioners, of Dixon Company, have been missing from their office since 2 months ago.
“We picked up the employees on the same day and began interrogating them one by one. After questioning many of them, we zeroed in on two. And upon their sustained interrogation, the duo confessed to the crime,” said an officer from Khar police station.
The accused, identified as Subhash Sahu, a resident of Grant Road, and Shamin Solanki, a resident of Juhu, have been working with Illuminati Films since the last five years.
The two said they had committed the offence since they were facing dire financial straits at their homes. One of them wanted the money to fund his sister’s wedding.
“The accused have been charged under sections 381 (theft by clerk or servant of property in possession of master) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code. They were produced in the Bandra metropolitan magistrate court and remanded in police custody till February 18. We are yet to make recovery of the stolen items. Investigations are on to find out who bought the ACs,” said Sub-inspector C D’mello in a statement.
