Three men arrested for stealing and using Shahrukh Khan’s credit card

Three men have been arrested for using Shahrukh Khan’s credit card and have been remanded in police custody until February 18th.

The trio Vinay Vijay Tambe (22), James Paul Peremal (28), and Shekar Jadhav (44) during the interrogation told the police that they had picked up the card from Santacruz which was lying on the road. The accused are residents of Bhandup and unemployed.

Shahrukh Khan had lost the credit card earlier this month along with his passport in Santa Cruz where he had gone for some shoot.

The trio who have been arrested for stealing Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's credit card, did not even knew that the money they were spending around using SRK's card belonged to him and also did not knew that they would have to put his signature on any purchase made using the card. In fact the trio not even attempted to sign as SRK and that move landed them in prison.

The trio used the card to buy branded apparels worth Rs.25,000. The three accused, who reportedly bought clothes and expensive branded wristwatches, were caught when an alert manager at Shoppers' Stop in Nirmal Lifestyle in Mulund found something wrong when the card folder signed as James Peremal instead of Khan and immediately called the police.

The police are now trying to figure out from where the three arrested men got Khan's ICICI credit card and will also quiz Khan to unravel the mystery of his missing card. However, the Bandra and Santa Cruz police denied having any knowledge of any complaint being lodged regarding Khan’s missing passport.
