The investigation of the case is ongoing and suspects are yet to be identified.
Earlier, Ahuja’s grandmother Sarla Ahuja had claimed that she had reportedly found out about the theft, when she had checked her cupboards for jewellery and cash on February 11. She further informed the police that the last time she had checked the jewellery in the said cupboard, was two years ago.
Following which, the actor’s mother-in-law Priya Ahuja rushed to the Tughlaq Road police station in New Delhi to lodge a complaint about the theft. The house is located at Amrita Shergill Marg, where Kapoor’s mother-in-law, father-in-law Harish Ahuja and Ahuja’s grandmother reside.
On February 23, a complaint was lodged and the police began probing the case, which was reportedly kept under wraps owing to its high profile status.
At present, the entire staff at Ahuja’s residence is being questioned as part of the investigation. Delhi police is questioning 25 employees aside from nine caretakers, drivers, gardeners and other workers. The officials are also going over CCTV footage from the previous year, to identify possible suspects.
Additionally, Forensic Science Laboratory Division (FSL), the government forensic department, is also involved in the case for collecting evidence from the crime scene.
Recently, in March, one of Ahuja’s father’s export-import firms was reportedly duped of Rs 27 crore by a gang of “highly sophisticated” cybercriminals, who was caught by the Faridabad Police.
Prior to that, in February, Ahuja was accused of tax evasion by an international shipping company, MyUS, that had alleged on Twitter that he had doctored invoices in order to avoid paying taxes and customs duties. Ahuja, however, had deemed the allegations levelled against him, as “baseless slandering.”
