Prime News, National, Corruption, Mumbai, June 25:- The Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has initiated an open inquiry against dismissed Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze for allegedly amassing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income, an official said on Friday (June 25).
The open inquiry has been started on the orders of the Director-General of the ACB as the agency was informed that Waze has been dismissed from police service, he said.
“The ACB officials will investigate Waze’s movable and immovable assets as well as the sources of his wealth,” he said.
Waze was arrested in March this year by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for his alleged role in planting an explosives-laden SUV near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence in south Mumbai on February 25 and the subsequent murder of Thane-based businessman Mansukh Hiran, who was in possession of that vehicle.
During the investigation carried out by the NIA into the case, Rs 1.5 crore were found in a bank account of a firm floated by Waze, the official said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies)
