Two servants of Bollywood star couple Ajay Devgan and Kajol have been arrested in connection with the theft of 17 gold bangles, valued at Rs 5.10 lakh, from their residence at suburban Juhu, the police said on Wednesday.
"Two accused Gayatri Devendra (22) and Santosh Pandey (43) were arrested yesterday in connection with the theft at actor Ajay Devgan's residence. The two were produced before Andheri's magistrate's court today and were remanded to judicial custody," an officer at Juhu police station told agencies.
The two servants allegedly stole the gold bangles on October 15 and the matter had come to light a week later during a function when Kajol could not find them when she wanted to wear them.
On October 23, an FIR was registered for theft against unidentified persons at Juhu police station. Kajol's family had also informed the police that an insider could have been behind the theft.
Based on their suspicion, the Juhu police zeroed in on the two servants, after questioning 10 odd servants working at their residence.
