Rupali Ganguly was robbed of Rs. 6 lakh cash and jewellery worth almost Rs. 75 lakhs on Wednesday morning at her apartment in Versova. The actress, who was looking for a maid, had an unknown lady come to her and say that she had been sent by an agency. Rupali, who had to rush to the hospital where her father had been admitted, asked the lady to wait at her place until she returned from the hospital. During that time, the woman apparently went in to her bedroom, broke the cupboard lock and stole all the jewellery and cash lying inside.
A distraught Rupali tells us, “We had kept the extra cash at home as my husband Ashwin (Verma) had to hand it to his workers. There were three other domestic helps in the house but they did not ask her anything as I had told her to stay back. She stole everything and was gone in 15 minutes! The police have been supportive and I hope they are able to track her down soon.”
