Shah Rukh to be quizzed over missing credit cardFebruary 16th, 2008 - 12:28 am ICT by admin
Mumbai, Feb 15 (IANS) Mumbai Police will quiz Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan to unravel the mystery of his missing credit card, which was recently found with three people who used it to buy branded apparel worth Rs.25,000. According to Mulund police station senior police inspector Prakash Landge, the police have also sought the statements of all the transactions on Shah Rukh’s card in the past few weeks to ascertain whether more fraudulent transactions have taken place.
“We are likely to get the statements from ICICI Bank within a day or two which will help the investigations. Also, Shah Rukh, who is abroad and returning early next week, has promised to co-operate with us in the matter,” Landge told IANS.
Last week, three Mumbai men indulged in a furious buying spree at a mega mall - Nirmal Lifestyle in Mulund, a suburb in northwest Mumbai - on a ICICI Bank credit card, which was later detected and confirmed as Khan’s missing card, Landge said.
An alert sales executive noticed that though the name on the transaction slip was Shah Rukh’s, it was signed by one of the youths, Vinay Vijay Tambe (22), a resident of Bhandup. He and James Paul Perumal (28) of Kanjurmarg and Shekhar Jadhav (44) of Bhandup had together bought branded apparel worth over Rs.25,000 from Shoppers Stop at the mall.
The sales executive immediately called the bank to verify the card’s authenticity. He also informed the police.
Police reached the mall post haste and nabbed the trio. A local court has remanded them to police custody till Monday.
Landge said that the card belonged to Khan and it was still not clear whether he lost it or it was stolen. The arrested men claimed to have found it in a bag on the road in Santacruz Feb 7.
