Mansukh Hiran death case solved, says Maharashtra ATS



The Maharashtra Anti Terror Squad (ATS), on March 21, said it had solved the case concerning the death of auto parts dealer Mansukh Hiran, who was allegedly murdered on March 5.

“This was one of the toughest cases to crack in my police career. I salute my ATS colleagues who worked day and night for the last few days to solve this case,” Deputy Inspector General of ATS Shivdeep Lande said.

Sachin Waze, the prime suspect in Hiran’s death, was arrested along with Mumbai police constable Vinayak Shinde and bookie Naresh Dhare.

Maharashtra ATS informed that Shinde and Dhare were associates of Waze, and their arrest may lead to more revelations concerning the death.

Mansukh Hiran was the owner of the explosives-laden SUV found outside the residence of Reliance Industries chief Mukesh Ambani in Mumbai on February 25.

After the bomb threat, they transferred the case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Subsequently, Hiren was found dead at a creek in suburban Mumbai on March 5 under mysterious circumstances.

Hiren’s wife said that Waze was using the same SUV for the past few months and alleged foul play in her husband’s death.

Meanwhile, a few bigwigs from the police and political department were roped into the case, leading to the transfer of Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh.

Singh accused Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh to be a close ally of Sachin Waze and demanded his resignation.
