Sachin Vaze along with 14 other policemen was suspended in connection with Khwaja Yunus's death, a suspect in the 2002 Ghatkopar blast case.
Still being suspended in connection with the custodial death of Khwaja Yunus, Mumbai police officer, Sachin Vaze, once a top 'encounter specialist', had been writing a book on terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). The senior IPS officer of J&K confirmed that he had met Sachin Vaze in a cafeteria in Sonwar, Srinagar, and discussed "militancy". He also mentioned that the Mumbai cop claimed to know Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-backed terror group. Further, the officer said, that he seemed to be interested in talking than listening - "I spoke little as Sachin Vaze narrated the 26/11 terror attacks." Also, another officer quoted that, "Sachin Vaze's research took him beyond Srinagar. He travelled to South Kashmir, including Shopian which is known as the hotbed of terror." Sachin Vaze did write two books. First, 'The Scout: The definitive account of David Coleman Headley and the Mumbai attacks, that he co-authored with Shirish Thorat, another cop in 2019 which elaborates the role of LeT with mention of J&K and second, 'Jinkun Harleli Ladhaai', a book based on the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai in 2012. Sachin Vaze along with 14 other policemen was suspended in connection with Khwaja Yunus's death, a suspect in the 2002 Ghatkopar blast case. In 2008, a thousand-page charge sheet was filed against them. The Mumbai cop, Sachin Vaze was recently arrested by the NIA for his alleged role in the Mukesh Ambani bomb scare case which included 20 explosive gelatin sticks inside a vehicle parked a few meters away from Mukesh Ambani's 'Antilia' residence in Mumbai.
