Mansukh Hiren's death has taken a mysterious twist. Thane Police say that he died by suicide however Mansukh's family claims that he has been missing since last night, we have filed a complaint about his missing and he has been murdered. Hiren's wife told the media that " when he left home last night, he was called by policeman Tawde to meet at Ghodbunder."
Last month, Hiren himself came out after ATS found an explosive near Ambani's residence Antilla and claimed his ownership of the SUV. Hiren claimed that he had already lodged an FIR about his missing vehicle with Vikhroli police. He reported that he left his vehicle on Eastern Express Highway after some glitch developed in the steering on February 25.
The opposition party has started questioning the government. Leader of opposition Devendra Fadanvis alleged the government and claims that he had call detail records from 2020 which revealed that assistant inspector Waze and Hiren knew each other and were in touch for a long time.
Further Fadanvis says that the day Mansukh went to report his missing vehicle many unexpected happenings were going on. After getting to know about the glitch in steering, Hiren took ola from the spot where he left the vehicle and went to Crawford Market, where the city police commissioner is situated. Fadanvis demands that whoever policeman met with Hiren should be probed. " There are many coincidences in the case which lead to suspicion", he added.
Fadanvis also shows some doubts about the police. Questioning the police, he asked that when the vehicle with explosives was found outside of Ambani's house, Waze reached the spot even before local Gamdevi police. "Later Waze was appointed investigating officer in the case. Three days ago, Waze was removed and the case handed over to the ACP( crime branch)", he said.
