Chin Waze was arrested late in the night at the NIA’s Mumbai office on Saturday after a lengthy interrogation. After Thane’s sessions court rejected an anticipatory bail plea in the case of the death of Scorpio owner Mansukh Hiren, Sachin came to record his statement in the NIA office.
The NIA has arrested Sachin Waze, Assistant Police Inspector (API) of the Mumbai Police, in connection with an explosive-laden Scorpio found outside Antilia, the home of industrialist Mukesh Ambani. Sachin Vazh was arrested late at night in the NIA’s Mumbai office on Saturday after a lengthy interrogation. After Thane’s sessions court rejected an anticipatory bail plea in the case of the death of Scorpio owner Mansukh Hiren, Sachin came to record his statement in the NIA office.
The Sessions Court, while rejecting the anticipatory bail plea of Sachin Vazh, said that prima facie there was sufficient evidence against him. In such a case, his anticipatory bail petition cannot be accepted. After rejecting the anticipatory bail plea, Sachin reached out to the NIA office at 11 am on Saturday where he had a long interrogation. According to media reports, Sachin was very uncomfortable while answering many questions. Many questions were put before him with documents, which did not get satisfactory answers. Late night news came that Sachin Waze had been arrested.
Serious charges against me
Earlier, the Sessions Court had also rejected Sachin Vazh’s anticipatory bail plea, saying that the charges against him were very serious. The court said that the charges in the case of Mansukh Hiren’s death have been framed under serious sections like 302 (murder), 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 201 (evidence erasure) of the Indian Penal Code. Mansukh Hiren accompanied the petitioner on 27–28 February. In such a situation, there is a need to interrogate Sachin Vaz in custody.
This is the case
On February 25, gelatin sticks were recovered from a suspected Scorpio car outside Antilia, the home of industrialist Mukesh Ambani. Scorpio owner Mansukh Hiren appeared after the incident, but died a week later in suspicious circumstances. Mansukh’s wife had alleged that the said Scorpio car was being run by API Sachin Viz for the last four months. He has expressed suspicion of murder on Sachin Vazh.
