Dismissed Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Waze, accused in the Antilia bomb scare-Mansukh Hiran murder case, moved the Special NIA Court for the second time seeking default bail under section 167(2) of the CrPC.

In an application sent from prison, Waze has said that he is entitled to bail as the National Investigation Agency has failed to file the charge sheet within 90 days from the date of his arrest on March 13, 2021.

The Special NIA Court rejected Waze's first default bail application on June 9, moved through his lawyers, while granting NIA additional two months to file a charge sheet against him.

Waze has cited the case of State Of Maharashtra vs Mrs. Bharati Chandmal Varma in his bail application and has sought to argue in person. The Special Court has ordered for him to be produced on July 22, accordingly.

The Case

An explosives-laden Scorpio Car, along with a threat letter, was found near the Ambani's residence on, February 25. Mansukh Hiran, a businessman who claimed that the vehicle had been stolen from his possession a week earlier, was found dead in a creek in Thane on March 5

NIA has said that Waze was involved in the planting of explosives and Hiran's murder. They claimed that the 'murderers' had called up Waze and former encounter specialist Pradeep Sharma right after they killed Hiran, on March 4.

Waze was arrested on March 13. The NIA subsequently arrested constable Vinayak Shinde and bookie Naresh GoreWaze's close aide API Riyazudding Qazi (crime branch unit incharge), Sunil Mane were arrested thereafter.

On June 11, Santosh Shelar and Anand Jadhav were taken into custody. Pradeep Sharma and Mansukh Hiran's alleged killers -Satish Muthukari and Manish Soni- were arrested on July 17.

Waze was initially investigating the case. However, it was subsequently transferred to the State Anti Terrorism Squad and then to the NIA, in March, 2021.

Accused are booked for murder and under relevant sections of the UA(P) Act.
