Alankrita Sahai, who plays Alankrita in Namaste England, recently spoke about being robbed at gunpoint by three criminals who broke into her Chandigarh home. “Three individuals forced their way into my residence and grabbed stuff worth 6.5 lakhs as well as cash. It was the cruelest deed… They had a knife to my neck, were trying to strangle me, had their hand on my lips, and had pinned me to the bed when I was attacked. I was smacked across the back, neck, and forehead. They threatened to kill me and verbally harassed me,” she added.
Alankrita continued, “I immediately called my downstairs caretaker Rajesh, who eventually called the cops. However, the burglars began smashing the doors and windows in the meanwhile. As they tried to break down the door, I clung to it. I tried everything I could to save myself and fight them off. I fought the robbers and was able to save myself. They would have assassinated me.”
Alankrita went on to say that the robber had done his research on her daily routine. “He knew when my maid went and when I was alone at home. He’s the same guy that came over to deliver furniture to my house a few days ago, and he’s the one who orchestrated everything,” she explained.
Alankrita further stated that the experience has made it difficult for her to sleep. “I’m paranoid. I see those three men attacking, pinning me down, and striking me. When I close my eyes, I get afraid if there is even a minor noise in my house. I haven’t ventured upstairs in my house since I lack the guts to do so,” she admitted.
