Hiren’s wife Vimala has said that Hiren had given this car to Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Vazhe for use and the car was with Vaje from November 2020 till 5 February this year.
On 25 February, gelatin sticks were found in an SUV car found outside Mukesh Ambani’s house and the car had a fake number plate and its chassis and engine number had been erased.
