Sachin Waze, the suspended police officer under investigation over his alleged role in planting explosives outside industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s Mumbai house, has been permanently sacked. The office of the Mumbai Police Commissioner issued the order for Waze’s dismissal from service citing constitutional provisions.
The National Investigation Agency, which normally probes terror-related incidents, has been investigating the recovery of scores of gelatine sticks inside an abandoned car near Mr Ambani’s multi-storey house in Mumbai earlier this year. The agency says it has found incriminating evidence against the ex-officer, who is currently in judicial custody in the Maharashtra capital.
The agency is also probing the death of a Thane businessman Mansukh Hiran, the owner of the car, who was found dead at a creek near Mumbai in March, days after he had reported the vehicle stolen.
Mr Hiran’s wife has alleged the officer had used the car for months before it went missing.
