THE gelatin sticks found in an SUV near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence in Mumbai last month were procured by suspended police officer Sachin Waze, NIA sources claimed on Wednesday. However, they did not elaborate on the source of the explosives. The National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is probing the case, has also found that Waze along with his driver parked the SUV near Ambani’s house, the sources said. “The gelatin sticks, which were placed in the SUV, were procured by Waze,” a source said.
The NIA has CCTV footage which shows the presence of Waze at the spot, the sources said. As a part the probe, the NIA team is going to collect CCTV footage of the compound of Mumbai police commissioner’s office and surrounding areas, they said, adding that this will establish Waze’s movements and other aspects. There were some attempts to tamper with the CCTV footage and DVRs of the police chief’s office, but majority of the footage is available, the sources said.
