Sachin Vaze to move Bombay HC terming NIA arrest ‘Illegal’

Mumbai: Sachin Vaze, who was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday for involvement in placing an explosive-laden SUV near Mukesh Ambani’s residence Antilia last month, has filed a habeas corpus petition before the Bombay High Court challenging his arrest.

His plea says that his arrest by the NIA in the explosives-case is “illegal” on the grounds that proper procedure was not followed while making the arrest.

Vaze who is currently in the custody of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with the explosives found in a car outside Mukesh Ambani’s residence Antilia, has on Monday been suspended from service by the Mumbai city’s police force.

In light of the grave allegations against the cop levelled by former CM Devendra Fadnavis and amid the ongoing probe also into the alleged murder of the car’s owner Mansukh Hiren, Assistant Police Inspector (API) Vaze has been placed under suspension, on the order of Additional Commissioner of Police, Special Branch, said Mumbai Police PRO, S Chaitanya.
