Maharashtra Government Hands Over Ambani Car Scare Case To NIA
The NIA was roped in to investigate the Mukesh Ambani case after Mansukh Hiren, the owner of the abandoned car parked outside the industrialist’s residence with explosives, was found dead on Friday
The Maharashtra government handed over the mysterious case of an explosives laden car found outside industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s south Mumbai home to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). The state’s home ministry confirmed the news yesterday.
This comes amidst the growing political slugfest around this matter after businessman Mansukh Hiren, the owner of the vehicle was found dead under mysterious circumstances on Friday at the Thane creek. Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis called for the arrest of police officer Sachin Vaze who was named by the deceased businessman’s wife in her complaint. According to her, the Scorpio SUV was with Vaze for over four months and when the Ambani case came to light, Hiren was reportedly forced by the cop to confess his involvement in the matter.
Late February, security was intensified outside the billionaire’s Antilia residence after the police recovered unassembled explosives and a threat letter inside an abandoned car at Carmichael Road. 20 gelatin sticks were found along with several fake number plates inside the Scorpio SUV. The letter addressed in Hindi to the industrialist and his wife Neeta Ambani called the incident a trailer and said that the real picture is yet to come. The paper was retrieved from a Mumbai Indians branded bag; the IPL team owned by the family.
