The National Investigation Agency or NIA on Friday arrested Mumbai police inspector Sunil Mane in connection with the recovery of an explosives-laden SUV near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence in Mumbai and the murder of businessman Mansukh Hiran, an official said.

With this, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has so far arrested three police officers in Mumbai, including suspended assistant police inspector Sachin Waze and his colleague Riyaz Kazi, in connection with these cases.

“Mane was called by the NIA for questioning on Thursday in connection with the Ambani security scare and Mansukh Hiran murder cases,” the official told news agency Press Trust of India.

“He was arrested after his involvement came to light,” he said.

“Mane will be produced in a court,” the official added.

Following his arrest, Mane was taken to a state-run hospital for medical check-up, he added.

The central agency had earlier arrested two more persons – suspended Mumbai police constable Vinayak Shinde and cricket bookie Naresh Gor.

Sunil Mane, who was in-charge of Unit-11 (Kandivali) of the Mumbai crime branch, was transferred in the wake of the Ambani security scare case.

The NIA had recorded his statement a few weeks ago, the official said.

Sunil Mane had been questioned by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), but senior officials had then claimed that he was cooperating with it in the investigation.

The explosives-laden SUV was found near Mukesh Ambani’s house in south Mumbai on February 25. Mansukh Hiran, a Thane-based businessman, had claimed that he was in possession of the SUV, but the vehicle had been stolen before its recovery near Antilia, Mukesh Ambani’s multi-storey residence. Mansukh Hiran’s body was found in a creek in Thane on March 5.

Mansukh Hiran’s wife, Vimla, in her statement to the Anti-Terror Squad had said that while leaving home on March 4, her husband had told her that he had received a call from ‘Tawade’, a police officer from Kandivali and he was going to meet him.
