In a recent twist to the Mansukh Hiren death case and the Antilia bomb scare, sources have revealed that suspended police Sachin Waze played a major role in both and have even admitted to his crime.
According to sources, Waze, who is under NIA remand and is being probed continously, has admitted that he was the person who put the letter threatening the Ambanis, inside the explosive-laden SUV which was found outside Antilia, Mukesh Ambani's residence.
According to reports, sources have also revealed that not only in the Antilia cases but Waze played a major role in the Mansukh Hiren case, the owner of the car which was found outiside Ambani's residence.
It further claimed that Waze instructed his accomplices and planned the murder of Mansukh Hiren adding that on the instructions of the suspended cop, former police constable Vinayak Shinde called Manuskh Hiren to the spot, made him unconscious, gagged him with a handkerchief, and threw him in the creek from where Hiren's body was recovered.
The ATS on March 21 arrested two men, Vinayak Shinde, a convicted constable on parole in an encounter case, and bookie Naresh Gor in the murder of the 48-year-old spare parts dealer, who is linked to the SUV that was found parked outside Mukesh Ambani’s Antilia residence last month containing 20 loose sticks of gelatin and a threatening letter addressed to the industrialist.
“Sachin Vaze confirmed to us that the concerned Scorpio car (found with gelatin sticks outside Mukesh Ambani’s residence Antilia) was not in his custody, and that he had no role to play in Mansukh Hiran’s murder… But when we started investigating the cause behind Hiran’s death, we arrested another suspended cop Vinayak Shinde who was also working under the instructions of Waze,” Maharashtra ATS chief Jaijeet Singh said at a press conference in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Waze has been sent by a Mumbai court to the custody of the NIA till March 25. The agency is likely to demand an extension for Waze's custody today.
