The Maharashtra ATS has alleged suspended cop Sachin Vaze’s role in the Mansukh Hiren murder case.
Suspended Mumbai Police officer Sachin Vaze had earlier been named the main accused in Mansukh Hiren’s death case.
Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Tuesday alleged that suspended Mumbai cop Sachin Vaze played a key role in the Mansukh Hiren murder case. Addressing a press conference, ATS chief Jai Jeet Singh claimed that the arrested officer was a conspirator in the murder case.
While the Maharashtra ATS chief did not specify Vaze’s motive, he shared crucial details that can prove the suspended Mumbai cop’s involvement in the murder case.
The Maharashtra ATS chief said that a Volvo car has been seized from Daman in connection with the murder case today and it is being analysed by the forensic team in Mumbai. The ATS squad probing the murder case also suggested that Sachin Vaze may not have been present when Hiren was murdered, but may have ordered the killing.
The ATS had earlier claimed that they have cracked the case without even getting to interrogate the main accused, Sachin Vaze.
Earlier in the day, it came to light that Sachin Vaze had used a fake Aadhaar card to check in at a posh hotel in Mumbai a day before Mansukh Hiren’s Scorpio went missing. India Today TV has accessed the fake Aadhaar card of arrested cop Sachin Vaze, which he allegedly used during his stay at the hotel in South Mumbai.
In the fake Aadhaar, Sachin Vaze has identified his name as Sushant Sadashiv Khamkar. He also mentioned his date of birth as June 15, 1972, whereas his original date of birth is February 22, 1972. However, he has used his original photograph in the fake ID.
Just a day after Sachin Vaze checked-in to the hotel on February 16, the Scorpio belonging to Mansukh Hiren was allegedly stolen and on February 25, it was found outside Mukesh Ambani’s residence with explosives in it.
It is suspected that the Scorpio car was in possession of Sachin Vaze and it was him who had parked the vehicle outside Ambani’s residence Antilia, just a few kilometres from the hotel.
