Police officer, Sachin Waze, was named as the prime conspirator in the case of planting the explosives with an intention to regain his clout in the police department. Soon after the vehicle was found with explosives, Mr. Waze went to the spot and taken up the investigation.
He was also charged for the murder of Mansukh Hiren. Mr Waze was known to be close to Param Bir Singh and had direct access to him despite being just an Assistant Police Inspector.
The Antilia case was handed over to National Investigating Agency, it has arrested three police officers including Waze for his alleged involvement in planting explosives in the car. NIA has filed the chargesheet to the court naming Waze and two other police officers.
