However, the official clarified that it was not an assembled explosive device.
According to Mumbai Joint Commissioner of Police V N Patil, the registration number of the abandoned SUV in which gelatin sticks were found is similar to that of a vehicle in the security detail of the Ambanis.
“Police has recovered a letter from the vehicle. The crime branch has taken over the case for further investigation,” Patil was quoted as saying by The India Express.
According to Deshmukh, the abandoned SUV was found some distance away from the residence of the chairman of Reliance Industries.
