Oshiwara police arrested history-sheeter Tik Tok star who had stolen cash and gold from model’s house
A TikTok star who had more than over 9 lakh followers was taken into custody on January 2 for stealing cash and gold worth roughly around 5 lakh from a actress – model flat in Andheri (West) on December 19. He was on a suspect list after the Oshiwara police saw the CCTV footage and saw that the black leather shoes worn by the burqa-clad thief and body movements matched the star. He is a habitual offender and has been in the police’s custody multiple times since 2011,
The accused is 28-year-old Abhimanyu Gupta. He convinced the victim, Khusbhoo Agarwal, to allow him to stay over until he rented his own flat. They became friends on Instagram some years back.
“I allowed Gupta to stay at my house. I was out of India from December 18 to 22 on work assignments when the theft occurred. I noticed the theft only on January 1. Gupta told me not to lodge a complaint claiming that the cops will harass my friends,” she said in her complaint
Police recovered the goods from under his bike seat. Gupta admitted committing the crime. His reason for the theft was that he required cash.
Gupta was last arrested by the Juhu police in May 2018 for house break-in and robbery of gold ornaments and a mobile collectively worth Rs 4.8 lakh from an elderly couple’s house in January 2018. He was held at various police stations in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai since 2011 for similar offences,” said senior inspector Dayanand Bangar of Oshiwara police station.
