The police have recovered the whole amount from the accused.
According to the police, Sajan Kumar had been working as a domestic help in the actor's house in Raj Classic Apartment at Versova area for the past four months.
"It was pre-planned offence. The cash was handed over to Kaushik by one of his employees two days ago before the incident. Kumar was aware of the cash," said police inspector Subhash Vele of the Versova police station.
"The incident occurred on Sunday afternoon when Kaushik's wife was in the bedroom, Kumar fled with the bag containing cash. When Kaushik's wife did not find the bag she informed the actor and following which approached the Versova police and registered a case against Kumar," said another officer.
"During interrogation Kumar told that after committing the crime he took an autorickshaw to Andheri railway station from where he went to Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. He wanted to flee to his native place but in the last moment he changed the plan and returned to Andheri again. He then took an autorickshaw for Kurla and hide himself in Kurla residency hotel," said Vele.
"Kumar had planned to take a train from Kurla railway station to his native place in Jharkhand but the hotel staff did not wake him up and he missed the train," added Vele.
"He again changed his plan and went to his relative's place in Kurla where he left the bag," said Vele.
He then went to Vashinaka in Chembur and bought a new mobile phone. "As soon as he used the mobile number, we tracked his movement through IMEI number and picked him from Vashinaka. The cash was recovered from his relative's place in Kurla. Kumar was produced before a local court, which remanded him in police custody till May 26," said the officer.
