In a recent update, the suspended Mumbai Police cop Sachin Vaze used a fake Aadhaar card to check into a five-star hotel in South Mumbai, a day before auto parts dealer Mansukh Hiren's Scorpio went missing.
According to reports, Vaze used the fake Aadhaar card to identify his name as Sushant Sadashiv Khamkar.
The suspended cop mentioned his date of birth as June 15, 1972, whilst his original date of birth is February 22, 1972. However, the picture was same.
The suspended assistant police inspector stayed at the posh hotel at Nariman Point from February 16-20 using forged Aadhaar. The National Investigation Agency team reached the hotel and carried out a thorough search of Vaze's room.
However, the investigative agency still can't ascertain why the cop used a fake ID and stayed at the hotel and who all he met during his stay.
The anti-terror agency officials also took CCTV footage of the hotel and are combing through it to trail Vaze's movements during his hotel stay. On March 13, Vaze, who was the lead investigator in the case, was arrested by NIA which took over the probe earlier this month.
