A Delhi businessman has alleged that Rs52,000 was stolen from his wallet at a five-star hotel near Kherki Daula on NH48 in Gurgaon on April 15. An FIR in this regard was filed on Tuesday at the Kherki Daula police station under Section 380 (theft in a dwelling house) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
According to the police, complainant Nitin Arora, a businessman from Meenakshi Garden in Delhi, was checking out from the Hyatt Regency hotel when he realised that his wallet was missing.
“When he couldn’t find his wallet, he assumed it was stolen, but later found it in his room in the hotel itself. However, he couldn’t find Rs52,000 that was in the wallet. An FIR has been filed in this regard and we are investigating the matter,” said assistant sub inspector Surender of Kherki Daula police station, investigating officer in the case.
Police officials said they checked CCTV footage of the hotel but did not find anything suspicious. Also, there are no CCTV cameras inside the room. Police added that there are no suspects yet either.
In February this year, a senior corporate executive Rakesh Sidana had reported theft of his smartphone from the same hotel. Sidana, AVP and national sales head of an automobile company, had complained that his phone was stolen from a table during an official get together at the hotel on December 16, 2016.
He had raised suspicion on the hotel staff and also accused the hotel management of not showing CCTV footage from all cameras. Assistant sub inspector Mukesh, who was investigating the matter, said the area was not covered by CCTV cameras. He added that the case was closed as no evidence was collected.
Comment from the hotel is awaited.
