The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will probe the mystery surrounding an explosives-laden SUV abandoned outside Mukesh Ambani’s home Antilia. Ambani is the chairman of Reliance Industries. The case was being probed by the Maharashtra Police.
The decision to transfer the case to NIA comes days after Mansukh Hiren, who was believed to be the vehicle’s owner, was found dead under mysterious circumstances on last Friday. Hiren’s body was found from Kalwa creek in Thane.
According to police, Hiren died by suicide. However, the condition in which his body was found has raised questions over the police’s theory. Hiren’s legs were tied and a piece of cloth was found stuffed inside his mouth. Hiren’s family members approached Naupada Police Station in Thane saying he had gone missing.
