The order terminating Sachin Vaze’s service was issued by Mumbai Police Commissioner Hemant Nagrale.

Vaze, who was arrested by the NIA in the case of an explosives-laden SUV found near Mukesh Ambani’s house and the murder of businessman Mansukh Hiran, is in judicial custody of the NIA. He was arrested by the NIA on March 13. Sachin Vaze was a 1990-batch officer of the Maharashtra cadre and was also known as the encounter cop.

After his return, he was appointed the head of the Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) which is an elite branch of the Mumbai Crime Branch.

The SUV case pertains to the parking of a Scorpio with explosives near Ambani’s residence Antilia on February 25. Mansukh Hiran, a Thane-based businessman who owned the SUV, was found dead in a creek in Thane on March 5. Vaze is accused in both the incidents and is believed to have plotted both the incidents.

The NIA has so far arrested five people including Vaze, API Riyazuddin Kazi, and Crime Branch senior inspector Sunil Mane in connection with the SUV-cum-murder case.

The case also exposed a link between Vaze and Anil Deshmukh, who was Maharashtra’s Home Minister and had to resign after a CBI probe was ordered against him. Vaze has alleged that Deshmukh asked him to collect Rs 100 crore every month from the city’s hotels, restaurants and bars.
