Mumbai : With the arrest of three persons, Mumbai police on Saturday claimed to have cracked the case where a cheque-book of actress Raveena Tandon’s husband Anil Thadani was stolen and Rs 12.50 lakh were transferred from his account.
The property cell of the Mumbai Crime branch arrested Omprakash Phatak, Vishwambhar Mishra and Radhemohan Chaube, and recovered 27 bogus PAN cards, 14 driving licences, 11 voter cards, 57 ATM cards, seven cheques, passports, nine rubber stamps, 37 bank passbooks and 19 mobile phones from them.
