45 CCTV cameras, yet actor’s house burgled
The 13th-floor south Kolkata flat of actor Rachana Banerjee has been burgled of ` 10 lakh in cash and jewellery, possibly by her domestic help, who has gone missing. The Bengali actor discovered the burglary herself late at her home on Panditiya Road, near Triangular Park. Her help, a resident of Burdwan who used to work in the flat, has been missing since then. This has led Rachana and the police to believe that her help is responsible for the burglary.
The building in which the actor stays is covered by 45 CCTV cameras, but none of the help’s employers had done a police verification before employing her, said police. The actor’s father Rabindranath Banerjee, however, told the police that she was in a hurry, and had left the keys to the almirah on the dressing table. The cops surmise that this could have allowed her help easy access to the ornaments that were kept inside.
