MUMBAI: The police on Wednesday arrested a housemaid for stealing gold ornaments worth Rs 5.3 lakh two hours after she started her job at the Santacruz flat of a teacher, Jigna Thakar (50), on January 7. During interrogation, Vanita Gaikwad told the police that she has committed four thefts in 2019, including at the Juhu flat of a film celebrity in March.

Acting on a tip-off, the police nabbed Gaikwad from Patilwadi locality in Govandi and recovered a few of stolen valuables in the four cases. “She has committed at least 28 thefts over a decade, including four this year,” said Santacruz police senior inspector Shriram Koregaonkar.

Assistant inspector Suresh Valvi said: “None of Gaikwad’s victims had any details about her, besides her name as she would clean out their flat within two hours of starting on the job.”
