Actress Rupa Dutta Arrested for Theft From Kolkata Book Fair

She was picked up by police from the International Kolkata Book Fair venue in Bidhannagar after several purses were found from her.

The purses contained Rs 65,760 in cash and she failed to prove the source of the money when asked about how she got it.

On Sunday, she was produced before a local court and sent to police custody for a day.

The court questioned police why no eyewitness statements were recorded or no victim complained about the alleged theft.

Dutta has been arrested under IPC sections 379 and 411 after sub-inspector Jayanta Nath Saha of Bidhannagar North Police Station filed a complaint.

Police sources said Dutta was also seen throwing some purses in a bin which raised their suspicion more.
