A Special National Investigation Agency (NIA) Court on Thursday rejected bail plea of dismissed Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze in connection with the Antilia bomb scare-Mansukh Hiran murder case.
Apart from this, the court also given NIA 30 days time period for filing the chargesheet. The court was scheduled to listen a hearing in the case of Waze, who is currently in jail under judicial custody.
On June 9, it had granted an extension of two months to the agency to file its charge-sheet. It sought another extension, saying investigation into the high-profile case was still under way.
On Tuesday, the NIA had argued in the court on its plea seeking one-month extension to file the charge-sheet. Waze has sought bail on the ground that the probe agency has failed to file the charge-sheet within the stipulated time (90 days), making him eligible for bail by default.
The former Assistant Police Inspector was arrested on March 13 and is currently lodged in the Taloja central jail in Navi Mumbai.
