Hiren Mansukh, a car parts dealer who was linked to an SUV filled with explosives found near RIL Chairman Mukesh Ambani’s house, reportedly wrote a letter before his death accusing cops and journalists of harassing him.
Hiren claimed a week earlier, about his stolen vehicle, and he lodged a complaint on February 18th. The same vehicle was spotted on the 25th of February, the car was found abandoned near Antilia, Mukesh Ambani’s 27-story building. Around 20 gelatin sticks, which are used in making explosives in quarries, were found in the car along with a handwritten letter to the Ambani family. As soon as the police were informed, the case was handed over to Mumbai crime special unit, headed by Sachin Vaze.
Mansukh Hiren was picked up by ATS for investigation. The next day, he was asked to appear before the NIA. He wrote the letter to Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, state home minister Anil Deshmukh, and the Mumbai police chief, saying he was being harassed and sought police protection. A few days later, the case was handed over to the NIA after the mysterious death of a Thane-based businessman Mansukh Hiren.
NIA sources claim that Mansukh Hiren’s Scorpio car was never stolen. After taking a private cab, Mansukh Hiren met one policeman from the CIU unit, gave him his car keys, and went home. The cop from the CIU unit, who was given the car keys, picked up the car and parked it at Sachin Vaze’s residence in Thane, the sources said.
NIA calls Sachin Vaze for questioning and after 12 hours of interrogation, he was arrested. Sachin Vaze has been taken into custody by NIA. The National Investigation Agency has charged Vaze with sections relating to conspiracy, criminal intimidation, negligent conduct in dealing with explosives, forgery, and possession of counterfeit seals.
Sachin Vaze, was behind the bomb scare, outside billionaire industrialist, Mukesh Ambani. He planned the plot only to regain the lost fame and could restore his reputation as a successful cop.
