Singer Mika Singh’s manager filed a complaint on Singh’s behalf, after cash worth ₹1 lakh and gold worth ₹2 lakh went missing from the singer’s residence. A first information report (FIR) has been registered against one of Singh’s close associates at the Oshiwara police station.

“The incident took place on Sunday afternoon when the associate went to the singer’s residence. We suspect that the theft took place after 2pm,” said a police officer on condition of anonymity. The police officer added that the accused is a piano artist who has been working with Singh for over 14 years

The police did not reveal the name of the suspect as the investigation is still underway. Footage from the CCTV camera installed at the entrance of the residence has been retrieved.

“The suspect was the only one to enter and exit the residence. The timing of his arrival and departure is suspicious as Singh’s cash and gold are missing since he left the house,” said the police officer. Since he left Singh’s house, the suspect is nowhere to be found, the police added.

Teams have been formed to trace the suspect and police have also alerted local and outstation informers. Police officers revealed that the suspect is from Delhi. They said they would despatch a team to Delhi if required. The suspect is booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
