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.
