A man, named Deepak Kevat was arrested by the Juhu police for breaking into Amitabh Bachchan’s house on Friday. Though the accused claimed he was a Big B fan and entered into the actor’s house to meet him but police recovered Rs. 8000 in cash from the house, Jalsa.
A leading English daily reported, “On Friday afternoon, Kevat first reportedly climbed on a gulmohar tree in the compound of a bungalow adjacent to the Bachchan residence, Jalsa, in Juhu. From the tree, he let himself down onto a tin shed erected over Jalsa to prevent rainwater from entering the house and from there, he clambered down to the balcony of Bachchan’s bedroom on the top floor.”
The police said, after taking away Rs. 8000 from the drawer of a desk, he was about to escape, but a domestic help saw him and raised the alarm. After this the security guards came into action and caught Deepak Kevat and handed him over to the police. Additional commissioner of police, Vishwas Nangre-Patil told media, “Kevat has been booked on the charge of house break-in. A metropolitan court has remanded him in police custody for 14 days. A native of Madhya Pradesh, Kevat came to Mumbai a month and a half ago. Here, he has been staying on railway platforms and looking for job. He claims a case of assault was registered against him earlier, but we are yet to verify his crime records.”
Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog, “Spent some anxious moments yesterday since we had a break in! The guy was caught and is with the police now under investigation. Seems like a professional, for he had entered the most sensitive area of the house, Jalsa. Cops and security are in overdrive now. In the end nothing is secure, irrespective of how much precaution one takes.”
