Today is not a happy birthday or a Happy Divali for lead female vocalist of the Indian/Chutney crossover band Karma, Nisha Bissambhar. She was left heartbroken yesterday after thieves struck at her exquisite boutique “The Doll House by Nisha B” in Cunupia.

Up to late last night, Nisha B, as she is fondly called by fans, was counting her losses at in excess of $85,000.

Speaking with the T&T Guardian by phone, Bissambhar said she secured her business, located along Southern Main Road, on Monday around 11.30 pm.

“At noon yesterday I noticed that the door looked like it had been tampered with. At a closer look at the front entrance the locks were actually sawed off,” she said.

Bissambhar said about 75 per cent of her latest stock of brand name clothing, which she bought in just last week, were stolen.

“All the brand name wear is gone…Michael Kors, Guess, Armani, G by Guess and Express. They took bags valued at $2,500 and up…some of my pieces were customised and I know them. This is heart breaking and I am not sure how to celebrate my birthday this year,” she said.

Officers from the Cunupia Police Station were up to late last night processing the scene and viewing surveillance footage.

Investigations are continuing.
