Court rejects Sachin Waze’s appeal for house arrest after heart surgery

Mumbai: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) court on Wednesday dismissed Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze’s appeal to be kept under house arrest for three months for recovery post heart surgery.

Waze will instead be shifted to Taloja Jail Hospital. The court has, however, allowed home food to be delivered to him and said that he can be shifted to the JJ Hospital in case of emergency. He had undergone a heart bypass surgery on September 13 at a private hospital.

NIA arrested Waze in March in connection with the investigation into the recovery of explosives from a car parked near Mukesh Ambani’s house in Mumbai. Waze is the prime accused of placing an explosives-laden vehicle near Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani’s house Antilia in Mumbai on February 25.
