Mumbai 08 Sep 21

The National Investigation Agency’s chargesheet in the bomb scare outside industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s house addresses a key question that had 

puzzled investigators probing the case: why did the main accused, dismissed Mumbai Police API Sachin Waze, return to the scene two hours after allegedly parking an SUV there with gelatin sticks and a threat letter inside? He allegedly feared he had forgotten his police ID in the parked vehicle, according to the statement of a prosecution witness.


The key witness is a Crime Intelligence Unit colleague of Waze who was tailing the SUV driven by the accused in another vehicle and has since claimed that he was misled into believing it was an official assignment.CCTV footage shows that the SUV was parked at 2.10 am on Carmichael Road in South Mumbai outside the Ambani residence on February 25. It shows a person wearing a long kurta, with a face mask, returning to the spot at 4.30 am and peering inside the SUV.


According to the statement, the two left Waze’s residence in Thane in a Scorpio and an Innova around 1.10 am. After crossing the toll booth at Mulund, Waze switched places with the colleague to drive the Innova in Chembur. The statement says that when the colleague asked Waze about their destination, he was told that it was a “secret” CIU operation.


After they reached Carmichael Road, the statement says, “Waze sat in the Scorpio for around 5 minutes and thereafter he came out from the left side of the Scorpio and walked towards the Innova parked by me behind the Scorpio”.
