The chargesheet of the NIA has come out on Wednesday in the Antilia case. According to this report, Mansukh Hiren, who had become a witness in the Antilia case, was murdered in just 11 minutes at the behest of sacked API Sachin Vajhe of Mumbai Police. He felt that Mansukh would reveal the whole secret.
There is also a dispute regarding this charge sheet. According to the chargesheet, former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir paid Rs 5 lakh to a cyber expert to change the investigation report of the explosives being kept outside Antilia. Cyber expert told this to NIA. But the controversy is happening because Parambir’s name is not there in the charge sheet. Sharad Pawar’s party NCP has raised questions on this.
The cyber expert told the agency that Parambir had also given Rs 5 lakh to change the report. He told that the name of terrorist organization Jaish-ul-Hind had come up in this case and only Parambir had instructed him to change the investigation related to it.
