Woman, lover arrested for stealing Rs 70.5 lakh | Ahmedabad News


A woman, along with her lover, was arrested on Monday night with cash worth Rs 70.5 lakh, which she stole from her landlord, a Surat resident, after promising him marriage.

The Chowk Bazaar police in Surat identified the accused as Jayshree Bhagat (26) and Shubham Nishad (25). They were on Tuesday produced before the Surat district court, which sent them to police custody till February 23.

According to the police, the complainant in the case, Dilip Ukani, had sold one of his properties in Katargam on January 23 and received Rs 96.44 lakh in cash, which he kept in his flat where he stayed alone. Ukani had given one of his other flats on rent to Jayshree, who stayed alone with her two children after separating from her husband Dinesh Bhagat.

“Jayeshree and Shubham came to know that Dilip had got cash worth Rs 96.44 lakh in his house and hatched a plan. Jayshree started a relationship with Dilip and assured him that her relation with Shubham was over. Promising Dilip marriage, she started staying in his house,” said a police officer.

“On January 31, Jayshree told Dilip to drop her two children at Dinesh’s house. When Dilip left the house with the children, Jayshree and Shubham stole the cash and escaped,” the officer added. After Dilip returned home, he approached the police.
