A major robbery took place at the office of Bollywood publicist, free lance journalist, scriptwriter and film director Flynn Remedios’ office in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. His video editor has been named as the main accused by the police.

According to a complaint filed by Flynn Remedios at the Versova police station on 9th December, he was working on some music video project and had hired the services of a free lance video editor Alok Singh to help him in the editing of the music video. The duo was working late night in the studio when Flynn Remedios decided to take a short nap. When he woke up after about 1.5 hours he found that two laptops, about 18 very expensive mobile phones, 5 pocket hard disks of varying capacities, his hand bag containing cash about Rs 40,000/- and various other belongings were missing including his wrist watch which he had left on the editing table. The video editor Alok Singh was not to be seen and the room had been literally wiped clean, except for the heavy desktop AVID and FCP machines.

He immediately called the police control room and a mobile police van reached the spot in about ten minutes. The Versova police have registered an FIR (FIR No 359/09) u/s 381 for theft and have named the absconding video editor Alok Singh as the main accused in the crime. The total value of the stolen physical goods is about Rs 5 lakh, but the value of the data and the freshly shot video footage would run into several lakh rupees, said Flynn Remedios, adding, “I trusted the man completely. Every day I would order his favorite biryani for dinner from a nearby restaurant. Even on Tuesday night, we had our dinner and I told him that I was going to sleep for an hour. I even told him to wake me up in short while as we had a shoot the next morning and had a call time of 7 am.  He has stolen my hard disks and about ten pen drives which had video footage worth several lakh rupees. I was working on two music videos and one film which I had directed. All the partly edited footage was stored on the portable hard disks. He should have at least left behind the hard disks which he knew had all the data.”
