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. He used CCTV to catch her when she stole money from the cupboard in his room.

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.
