The popular singer Sonu Nigam’s father’s driver was reportedly arrested by Mumbai police on Wednesday for allegedly stealing Rs 72 lakh from his home.
The singer’s father, Agam Kumar Nigam, reportedly harbored misgivings about Rehan, his former driver. An FIR was filed against Rehan at the Oshiwara police station based on his father’s statement, who has suspicions about his former driver, according to a Mumbai Police officer.
Rehan had worked for the singer’s father for about eight months, but the police claim that he was fired because he wasn’t very good at it.
Nikita Nigam, a sister of Sonu Nigam, claimed that her father kept the stolen money in a digital locker integrated into a wooden cabinet.
“Around 12 noon on Sunday, Agamkumar went to his daughter Nikita’s house in the Versova area for lunch and returned after some time to find the almirah of his house open and Rs 40 lakh missing. He immediately rang up his daughter, informing her that Rs 40 lakh had been stolen from his digital locker in the wooden cupboard,” the complaint read.
