The National Investigative Agency has confirmed that the person, seen in a CCTV grab walking near Reliance Industries chairperson Mukesh Ambani’s residence in Mumbai on the night of February 25, when an explosive-laden vehicle was found, was Sachin Waze.
“In the CCTV footage, Sachin Waze could be seen with his head covered with a large handkerchief so that no one could identify him. He was wearing an oversized kurta-pajama, and not PPE coverall, in an attempt to mask his body language and face,” the NIA added.
“A laptop was seized from the cabin of Sachin Waze in a raid day before yesterday but all the data in it was already deleted. He was asked for his cellphone and he had said that he had dropped it somewhere. But the fact is that he had intentionally thrown it away,” NIA said.
NIA was investigating a CCTV visual that surfaced on Monday showing a person walking near Ambani’s residence on the night an explosive-laden vehicle was found wearing what initially seemed like a PPE.
