41 sovereign jewels missing from Iman Annachi’s Chennai house

Chennai: A huge amount of gold went missing from an actor’s house in Arumbakkam yesterday, and police are conducting inquires with two domestic help regarding this.

According to police sources, 41 sovereigns of jewels and Rs 10,000 in cash have mysteriously vanished from actor Iman alias Iman Annachi’s house in Arumbakkam.

Iman lived with his wife and children at Venkata Krishna Nagar. While his family left for their hometown in Tirunelveli 10 days ago, he stayed back.

The jewels and Rs 10,000 were kept in a cupboard in his house. He had seen that the valuables were intact on Good Friday and went to church and then left for shooting.

When he returned yesterday, he found them missing. The police said the cupboard’s lock was not tampered with. So, it is suspected that the thief used duplicate keys to open it.

Based on a complaint from Iman, the Arumbakkam police have registered a case and have launched a hunt for the suspects with the help of CCTV footage retrieved from the locality. Two domestic help are being questioned in connection with this.

Iman became popular through his TV shows and later went on to become a character artiste on the silver screen. He was last seen in the movie Saamy Square.
