I was shooting for the show and was unaware about my debit card being stolen.
“I realised it only when the bank sent me a message stating that I had made a purchase of Rs 50,000. I was shocked and could not believe it. That’s when I discovered that my card was lost. The amount was spent before I could block my card”, she said.
Adita lodged a complaint at the Sakinaka police station. After interrogating the unit members of the show, the police finally zeroed in on the costume designer. She was arrested on Tuesday morning. “The police has advised me not to reveal the name of the person arrested. No, I haven’t recovered my money yet. I am keeping my fingers crossed and hope to get it back”, said Adita.
Adita has become more careful after that incident. “I take more care of my belongings now and yes, I have almost lost trust in people. Even when I am shooting, I always keep an eye on my purse as I don’t want this kind of incident to be repeated”, she said.
