Bengali actress Rupa Dutta has been arrested for allegedly pick-pocketing at the ongoing International Kolkata Book Fair. According to media reports, cops became suspicious after they saw a woman throwing a bag in the dustbin. Rumours suggest that an amount of Rs 75,000 has been recovered from Rupa.
The incident happened on Saturday night. Kolkata’s Bidhannagar North police station revealed that cops on duty at the ground saw a young woman throwing something like a bag in the dustbin and raised an alarm. The police interrogated the woman, now we know actress Rupa Dutta, and when searching her bag, small bags filled with money were recovered. The total amount of money recovered is Rs 75,000. Latest reports also claim that the actress will now be taken to court.
Police have identified her as Rupa Dutta, the same actress who once wrongly accused acclaimed filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment.
For the unversed, back in 2020, Rupa Dutta had alleged that director-producer Anurag Kashyap sent her inappropriate messages on Facebook. But soon it was revealed that she was actually chatting with another man with the same first name as Anurag. At that time Rupa had also shared screenshots of her chat through her Twitter handle.
