NEW DELHI: For­mer Ra­jya Sabha MP Wasim Ah­mad on Sun­day filed a po­lice case against his do­mes­tic help, ac­cus­ing him of al­legedly com­mit­ting a theft at his south Delhi flat and steal­ing ex­pen­sive items .

An FIR was reg­is­tered at the Sun­light Colony po­lice sta­tion against Mo­ham­mad Yamin, who was em­ployed by Ah­mad as a care­taker of his Sid­harth Ex­ten­sion home in 1995.

Ah­mad, who was MP in the up­per house be­tween 1990 and 1996, said the stolen items in­clude his more than 500 pho­to­graphs, some of them with for­mer prime min­is­ters and for­eign dig­ni­taries, five Pash­mina shawls worth over ₹5 lakh, car­pets gifted to him by for­mer prime min­is­ter VP Singh, 100 ex­pen­sive branded pens, Rolex wrist­watch, sou­venirs, among other items.

“The theft was de­tected when I vis­ited my Delhi home on Fe­bru­ary 20 and found it locked and Yamin miss­ing. I opened the flat us­ing du­pli­cate keys and found the items miss­ing. Yamin must have con­spired with some­body to com­mit this crime,” said Ah­mad.

Chin­moy Biswal, deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (south­east), said, “We have reg­is­tered a case and look­ing for the care­taker. His in­ter­ro­ga­tion would help us re­cover the stolen items.”
