Mumbai (PTI): Two unidentified persons broke into the office of Bollywood actor Anupam Kher and stole the negatives of a film produced by his company and Rs 4.15 lakh in cash, police said on Thursday.

The incident took place on Wednesday night at the actor's office on Vira Desai Road in Amboli area, said an official.

It came to light around 9.45 on Thursday morning when the office staff arrived and found the locks broken, he said.

Kher himself narrated the incident in posts on his official X handle and Instagram page.

“Last night in my Veera Desai Road office two thieves broke two doors and stole the entire safe from the accounts department (which they probably couldn't break) and the negatives of a film produced by our company which was in a box. Our office has filed an FIR,” the 69-year-old actor wrote in Hindi, without mentioning the name of the film whose negatives were stolen.

CCTV footage outside the building showed the duo leaving in an auto rickshaw, Kher added, stating that "may God give them good sense (`sad-buddhi)."

The First Information Report was registered at Amboli police station under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and probe was underway, the police official said.

Pune, Jul 22: A man and his friend were arrested for allegedly throwing the body of a woman in Indrayani river in Pune and flinging her two children into the waterbody as well when they started crying, a police official said on Monday.

The 25-year-old pregnant woman died when she was sent by her paramour and main accused, Gajendra Dagadkhaire, to Thane near Mumbai for an abortion, the Pimpri Chinchwad police station official said.

"On the way back on July 9, Dagadkhaire and his associate Ravikant Gaikwad threw the woman's body into the Indrayani river near Talegaon. When her children, aged two and five, started crying, the duo pushed them into the river as well. The woman was estranged from her husband and was in a relationship with Dagadkhaire, which resulted in her getting pregnant," the official said.

After the woman's mother approached police with a missing person complaint, a probe began, resulting in the arrest of Dagadkhaire and Gaikwad based on technical evidence, he said.

"The bodies of the woman and the two children have not been found as yet. Dagadkhaire and Gaikwad were remanded in police custody till July 30. Further probe into the case is underway," the official informed.
