Mumbai: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) late on March 13 arrested assistant police inspector Sachin Vaze in a case pertaining to recovery of an explosives-laden car that was found abandoned near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s mansion Antilla in Mumbai on February 25.

The car’s immediate owner — Mansukh Hiren, a resident of Thane — was found dead under suspicious conditions in a creek on March 5.

The case was transferred to NIA on March 8 from the Maharashtra Police.

An NIA spokesperson said that Mr. Vaze was arrested at 11.50 p.m. on March 13. The NIA spokesperson added that the Mumbai Police Crime Branch officer has been arrested for his “role and involvement in placing explosives laden vehicle near Carmichael Road” on February 25.

The case being probed by NIA is registered under various sections of forgery, criminal intimidation, criminal conspiracy and Explosives Act.

Earlier in the day, a Thane court rejected the interim bail plea of the Mumbai Crime Branch officer who is a former member of the Shiv Sena and in his previous stint as a police officer has been accused of custodial killing. He was under suspension since 2004, and was reinstated in June 2020 by the Maharashtra government.
