Actor Alankrita Sahi was held captive and robbed NS650,000 on Tuesday at her residence in Chandigarh. Three intruders entered her rented apartment at 12:30 p.m. and held her hostage. One of them took her ATM card and withdrew NS50,000 while others were watching her.
According to an Indian Express report, Alankrita suspects that one of the thieves is the same person who delivered the furniture to her home over the weekend. When I screamed for help, the robbers ran across the balcony, first landing on the ground below, and then escaping. I hid in the bathroom during this time.
Senior police officers SP (City) Ketan Bansal, DSP (East) Gurmukh Singh, SHO PS-26, Inspector Jasbir Singh, Crime Branch Inspector Harinder Singh Sekhon and others rushed to the site. The report quoted sources as saying that the suspects were caught on surveillance cameras installed in the neighborhood.
Bansal said, “The victim is from the film industry. She was alone in the house. The entrance door was opened. The thieves entered by force and stole the victim at the knife point. We registered a case and have important evidence.”
Alankrita reportedly argued with a furniture delivery person over the weekend and police dispatched teams to track potential customers at furniture sellers.
