Ambani security head tells NIA: Nita Ambani cancelled Gujarat trip due to finding of bomb-laden SUV outside Antilia

The statement is part of the NIA's charge-sheet which was filed last week before a special court.

The discovery of an SUV full of explosives near the residence of Reliance Industries boss Mukesh Ambani in Mumbai was all over the news in February this year. Now, it has come to light that the finding of the unmarked SUV was possibly the reason Ambani’s wife Nita Ambani skipped her Gujarat visit.

The Ambani’s private security chief, a retired Army colonel, has told the National Investigation Agency (NIA) that Nita Ambani’s planned visit to Jamnagar was rescheduled and then cancelled on the advice given by him and the zonal DCP’s advice.

The statement is part of the NIA’s charge-sheet which was filed last week before a special court. The chargesheet was filed against dismissed Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze and nine others in connection with the recovery of the SUV with gelatin sticks near Antilia, the Ambani residence, on February 25 and the subsequent murder of businessman Mansukh Hiran. Waze is the prime accused in the Hiran murder case.

The security head stated they had been receiving threats from various quarters, but all were related to the farmers’ protest that began in October 2020. The NIA in its charge-sheet said Waze parked the SUV, said to be Hiran’s, with explosives near Ambani’s house to regain his reputation as a super cop.

The NIA said Hiran was subsequently killed as Waze thought him to be the weak link in the conspiracy and that Pradeep Sharma was roped in to execute the murder.

Besides Waze and fomer police officer Pradeep Sharma, the others accused in the case are Vinayak Shinde, Naresh Gor Riyazuddin Kazi, Sunil Mane, Anand Jadhav, Satish Mothkuri, Manish Soni and Santosh Shelar. Shinde, Kazi and Mane are former police officers. The accused have been charged under various Indian Penal Code sections, including for murder, criminal conspiracy, kidnapping and negligent conduct with respect to explosive substance, as well as relevant provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, the Explosive Substances Act and the Arms Act.
