Mumbai: The National Investigation Agency will now probe the alleged murder of businessman Mansukh Hiren after receiving approval from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
Mumbai Police’s Anti-Terrorism Squad, which was probing the alleged murder of Mansukh Hiren, will now hand over the case to NIA which is also investigating the Antilia bomb scare probe.
Suspended Mumbai police API Sachin Vaze was arrested by the NIA on last Saturday night under Sections 286, 465, 473, 506(2), 120 B of the IPC, and 4(a)(b)(I)Explosive Substances Act 1908 for his alleged role & involvement in an explosives-laden vehicle being placed near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s house Antilia in Mumbai on February 25.
Earlier on Friday night, the NIA and Forensic team took suspended Mumbai API Sachin Vaze on Friday night to the crime scene where the explosive-laden Scorpio was found outside Antilla on February 25, to recreate the crime scene.
Visuals from the site showed Vaze was made to walk to the site where the car was found, as spotted in the CCTV footage on that night. Moreover, Vaze was also made to wear an over-sized Kurta, a mask and a handkerchief over his head to recreate the ‘PPE-wearing’ man spotted approaching the car on February 25.
