Ambani Bomb Scare: NIA Arrests Mumbai Police Officer Sachin Vaze Suspected In Mansukh Hiren’s Death Case

In her statement recorded to ATS, Mansukh Hiren’s wife has also suspected his murder by Mumbai Police officer Sachin Vaze. 


The NIA on Saturday arrested controversial Mumbai Police officer Sachin Vaze after interrogation that went on for 12 hours. The NIA will present him in front of the court today and demand judicial custody. Vaze was arrested in connection with a bomb scare at Mukesh Ambani’s residence Antilia. A Scorpio car with 20 sticks of gelatine and a threat letter was found at Altamont road. Earlier, Thane’s sessions court on Saturday dismissed Vaze’s anticipatory bail plea. The court had noted that prima facie there is some evidence against him. To avoid arrest, Vaze had filed an anticipatory bail plea on Friday. The next hearing of the case will be on 19 March.

He has also been accused in the case of the death of Mansukh Hiren, the owner of a Scorpio car recovered from outside Antilia. The case is being investigated by the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS). Meanwhile, Maharashtra Police is also investigating the theft of Mansukh’s Scorpio.

After all the allegations surfaced against Sachin Vaze he was removed from the Crime Branch on the orders of Maharashtra Home Department. He has been sent to the civic amenities center. This order was issued on Friday 12 March late evening. On March 10, the opposition created an uproar in the case in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.

What is he accused of?

Vaze’s name is being linked to the death of Mansukh Hiren, owner of Scorpio, recovered from outside the ‘Antilia‘ on 25 February. In the case of Mansukh’s death, Maharashtra ATS has registered a case of murder and criminal conspiracy. Mansukh’s wife Vimala Hiren has also accused Vaze of being involved in her husband’s murder. The allegations were made by Vimala Hiren through a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

Vimla said – Vaze was using Scorpio

Nearly a week after the Scorpio was found, Mansukh Hiren’s body was found in the creek near Thane, seven kilometers from his home. After this, his wife revealed that the said Scorpio car was being used by API Sachin Vaze for the last four months. In her statement recorded to ATS, she has also suspected the murder of Hiren by Sachin Vaze.

No evidence of Scorpio theft found

Forensic reports of explosives filled with explosives recovered from outside Mukesh Ambani’s house have also surfaced. According to the report, an attempt was made to erase the car’s chassis and engine number from the grinder. No evidence of any tampering, sabotage or force entry has been found to open the car gate or to steal. That is, the person stealing the car succeeded in stealing the car very easily.

NIA and ATS Continue investigation

Hiren said that he had left the vehicle on the road, as his steering was jammed on the night of 17 February. Meanwhile, on Friday, a NIA team arrived to meet Thane police officials to get information related to the case, sources said. Maharashtra ATS investigating Hiren’s death has also recorded statements of some individuals in Thane.
