Dismissed policeman Sachin Waze, an accused in the SUV bomb scare-Mansukh Hiran murder case, has moved a default bail plea in a special court here citing failure on the part of the National Investigation Agency to file a charge sheet within the stipulated time. Waze, who was arrested in March, had recently moved an application seeking bail claiming the NIA had failed to submit a charge sheet within 60 days.
The special court had, on June 9, granted two more months to NIA to file a charge sheet. Waze has questioned the extension granted to the NIA and the court has kept the matter for hearing on July 22.
An explosives-laden SUV was found near south Mumbai on February 25 and Thane-based businessman Mansukh Hiran, who had claimed that he was in possession of the vehicle, was found dead in a creek on March 5.
