Tired of the constant small thefts happening in his home, a chartered accountant installed CCTV cameras at his place and caught his maid red handed. Neighbours have also complained of things going missing from their place too after the woman was nabbed.
The incident happened at Ratnakar Altirum in Anandnangar where Gopal Shah, a chartered accountant, lived with his wife, children, parents and brother. A woman, Asha Chauhan, had been working as a maid in his house for the last six months.
Chauhan a resident of Vejalpur, had not been coming during the lockdown and had only recently resumed work only on June 16. On July 1, Chauhan went to Shah’s penthouse to clean it and she went to his brother Parth’s room. Thinking that she is alone she opened the cupboard and took out the cash kept in there. Shah immediately informed the police who came and arrested Chauhan. Police recovered 65,000 in cash and a diamond necklace worth Rs 30,000 from the maid.
