Chutney/Indian female lead vocalist of the band Karma, Nisha Bissambhar, has saluted nine officers from the Cunupia Police Station for their hard work and diligence in making a breakthrough in the robbery of her boutique - “The Doll House by Nisha B.”

Shortly before midnight on Tuesday, a team of officers led by Cpl Neptune and investigating officer PC Backan went to Oasis Gardens, Endeavour, Chaguanas, where they arrested four people, one of whom is a female, in connection with the robbery. Some of the stolen items were also recovered, but most of the high-end items remained missing.

The breakthrough came just in time for the celebration of Bissambhar’s birthday and religious holiday of Divali yesterday.

“I’m very grateful to these exceptional members of our Police Force – Cpl Neptune, WPCs Elcock and Carter and PCs Backhan, Mc Donald, Samaroo, Huggins, Jagesar and Mohammed,” Bissambhar told the T&T Guardian in an interview yesterday.
“They are still investigating and have worked very hard to ensure one of their citizens got justice. Hats off! I salute your hard work!”

Bissambhar also thanked the officers for their dedication to the citizenry of T&T.

In her Divali message to her family, friends and fans, many of whom offered her support in the wake of the robbery of her business, Bissambhar thanked God for life and the abundance of wealth.

“My family, husband and child. God has gifted me with love and light. For all of this, I am thankful. On this Divali day, I’m blessed to celebrate my birthday in prayer and devotion. I thank everyone for their kind words of support and wishes. May we all be guided and protected. I pray that light shall always overcome darkness. Happy Divali my dear people.”

On Monday at 11.30 pm, Bissambhar secured her business place, located at Southern Main Road in Cunupia, and went away. When she returned at noon on Tuesday, however, she noticed that the locks to the shop had been sawed off.

Bissambhar said about 75 per cent of her latest stock of brand name clothing which she brought into the country just last week was stolen. The items valued in excess of $85,000, some of which were customised with her own Nisha B brand.

Investigations are continuing.
